Referred — Proposed Ordinance to Prescribe Added 
Safety Regulations for Schools, Other 
Places of Assembly, Etc. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the proposed ordinance transmitted therewith, Re- 
ferred to a Special Committee consisting of the mem- 
bers of the Committee on Police, Fire, Civil Service, 
Schools and Municipal Institutions and the members 
of the Committee on Buildings and Zoning: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

December 22, 1958. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On December 1st a tragic school 
fire struck our city. 

After conferring and receiving advice from ex- 
perts from all parts of the country and acting upon 
the recommendations of Fire Commissioner Robert 
Quinn and Building Commissioner George Ramsey, 
I am presenting for your approval today an ordi- 
nance designed to provide additional safeguards to 
the people of Chicago against a repetition of such 
a tragedy in our city. 

The ordinance provides for the installation of 
sprinkler systems in schools, hospitals, infirmaries, 
nursing homes, nurseries, orphanages, sheltered- 
care homes, sanatoria and homes for the aged; 
mandatory fire drills; and requires that all school 
fire alarm systems must be directly connected to 
City fire alarm boxes. 

This proposed ordinance is a first step in a pro- 
gram designed to give greater fire protection to the 
people of Chicago. The proposed measures have' re- 
ceived nearly unanimous approval. They are the 
first steps in revising the Municipal Code to provide 
the greatest possible protection in school buildings, 
hospitals and other institutions requiring the great- 
est safety measures. 

However, other recommendations, such as the 
enclosure of stairwells with fire doors, the recon- 
struction of stairways with non-combustible ma- 
terial, the installation of fire escapes, the elimi- 
nation of locks and latches on doors, the installation 
of panic hardware, the removal of closets and re- 
cesses below stairs, and many others will be studied, 
and after public hearings, those recommended will 
be submitted to the City Council. 

The ordinance proposed today has been cited by 
experts as being the most feasible and practical. 
It can be carried out within a reasonably short 
period of time. 

This immediate program will undoubtedly call 
for increased expenditures on the part of schools 
and other institutions, but the financial cost cannot 
be weighed against the need for these essential 
safeguards to human life. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Richard J. Daley, 

Mayor.

lations for grievances, hearings, and appeals."

Whereas, The classification and wage and salary 
plan will promote greater efficiency and will reduce 
as far as possible the many inequities that have 
developed over the years in the classification and 
pay of employees; and 

Whereas, The adoption of the plan will establish 
salary schedules for the various classifications 
based on costs of living in the Chicago area, pre- 
vailing salaries and the nature and responsibility 
of the positions. The plan establishes a sound and 
equitable personnel policy throughout the City serv- 
ice. It will encourage qualified men and women to 
seek a career in City service. It will reduce turn- 
over. A longevity provision in the plan insures 
recognition for long and faithful service to the City. 
It will simplify budgeting of personnel services in 
all departments; and 

Whereas, The 1959 Budget takes into considera- 
tion the provisions of the classification and wage 
and salary plan ; and 

Whereas, In order to coordinate the provisions 
and rules of the Civil Service Commission relating 
to such classification and wage and salary plan and 
the provisions of the Budget providing for the 
salaries for the year 1959, it is desirable that the 
following declaration by the City Council be adopt- 
ed; now therefore,

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL- CHICAGO 



December 22, 1958 



Be It Resolved, That the following provisions 
governing the administration of compensation be 
adopted : 

REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE 
ADMINISTRATION OF COMPENSATION 
FOR CLASSIFIED POSITIONS. 

A. Purpose. 

These regulations contain provisions concerning 
compensation administration, benefits and working 
conditions for all civil service classified positions 
in the departments and offices which are subject 
to control and regulation by, and for which com- 
pensation is required to be fixed by, the Mayor and 
the City Council of the City of Chicago. 

B. Adoption and Definition of the Compensa- 
tion Plan. 

(1) Adoption of the Compensation Plan. 

The salary schedule, including a range of pay 
for each class grade, as set forth in Schedule B 
— Base Salary Schedules, Schedule C — Longevity 
Salary Schedules, and Schedule D — Salary Sched- 
ules for Uniformed Positions in the Fire and Police 
Forces, hereof, shall constitute the compensation 
plan for classified positions in the City service in 
departments which are subject to the control of 
the Mayor and the City Council. The class grade 
for each class of positions as specified in Schedule 
A of Civil Service Rule I — Classification shall de- 
termine the salary range applicable to all positions 
of the class. 

(2) Base Salary Schedule. 

Each base salary range in Schedule B includes 
an entrance rate, an intermediate rate or rates and 
a maximum rate. The normal entrance rate shall 
be the rate so designated in the salary schedule 
for all salaried positions. Except as otherwise pro- 
vided herein, the salary upon initial appointment to 
any position shall be at the entrance rate and ad- 
vancement by successive steps from each specified 
salarj^ rate to the next higher rate shall be made 
on the basis of satisfactory service for at least 
the periods specified in the schedules. 

(3) Longevity Salary Schedule. 

Each longevity salary range in Schedule C in- 
cludes three longevity pay rates. After at least 
one year of satisfactory service at the maximum 
rate of a salary range, each salaried employee shall 
be advanced to the first longevity rate of that range 
when he has completed a total of six years of con- 
tinuous service with the City. After at least one 
year of satisfactory service at this rate, the em- 
ployee shall be advanced to the second longevity 
rate when he has completed a total of ten years 
of continuous service with the City. After at least 
one year of satisfactory service at this rate, the 
employee shall be advanced to the third longevity 
rate when he has completed a total of sixteen years 
years of continuous service with the City. 

(4) Salary Schedule for Uniformed Positions 
in the Fire and Police Forces. 

The salary schedule for uniformed positions in 
the Fire and Police Forces set forth in Schedule D 
includes an entrance rate, an intermediate rate and 
a maximum rate in each base salary range. 

(5) Salary Rates Based upo7i Full-Time Em- 
ployment. 

The salary rates prescribed in the salary sched- 



ules are fixed on the basis of full-time service for 
normal work weeks of 35 to 40 hours except as 
indicated otherwise for certain classes in Schedule 
A of Civil Service Rule I — Classification. For posi- 
tions which are professional, supervisory and ex- 
ecutive in character, the normal work weeks of 35 
to 40 hours generally apply, but the compensation 
is intended to be appropriate for the class regard- 
less of variations in the time that may be required 
to satisfactorily fulfill the responsibilities of the 
positions. 

(6) Computation of Salaries of Part-Time Em- 
ployees. 

A professional employee occupying a position in 
class level 11 and above who is regularly employed 
on a continuing work schedule of less than 35 
hours per week, shall be compensated on the follow- 
ing basis : 

(PT-A) — Authorized part-time service more than 
one-half and not more than three- 
fourths full-time — eighty per cent 
(80%) of rates prescribed for full- 
time employment. 

(PT-B) — Authorized part-time service more than 
one-fourth and not more than one-half 
full-time, or part-time professional 
service on an available-as-needed basis 
sixty per cent (60%) or rates pre- 
scribed for full-time employment. 

(PT-C) — Authorized part-time service not more 
than one-fourth full-time — thirty per 
cent (30%) or rates prescribed for 
full-time employment. 

Any other employee who is employed on a part- 
time schedule shall be paid for hours actually 
worked at an hourly rate equivalent to the salary 
rate of the position. 

(7) Continuity of Service. 

Service requirements for advancement within the 
salary ranges and for other purposes as specified 
herein shall have the implication of continuous 
service with the City of Chicago. This means em- 
ployment without a break or interruption; provided 
that any absence on leave without pay or lay-off 
for 30 days or less shall not affect the continuity 
of service. Absence from the City service on leave 
without pay for periods in excess of 30 days, all 
suspensions, time after lay-off for more than 30 
days and prior to reinstatement, and all absences 
without leave shall be deducted in computing total 
continuous service. AH discharges and resignations 
not followed by reinstatement within one year shall 
interrupt continuous service and shall result in the 
loss of all prior service credit. 

C. Application and Interpretation of the Com- 
pensation Plan. 

(1) Starting Rate on Initial Employment. 

Original and temporary appointments to any po- 
sition shall be made at the entrance rate of the 
salary range prescribed for the applicable class 
grade. In exceptional cases, upon recommendation 
by the department head and the Civil Service Com- 
mission and upon the approval by the Budget Dir- 
ector, orginal appointment may be made at any 
base rate above the normal entrance rate; provided 
that the position to which appointed involves execu- 
tive, administrative, highly specialized, or profess- 
ional duties and responsibilities; and, provided 
further, that any such exception is based on the 
outstanding and unusual character of the appli- 



December 22, 1958

9259 



cant's experience and training over and above the 
minimum qualifications specified for tlie class. 

(2) Starting Rate on Return to Duty. 

When an employee returns to duty in a position 
of the same class after a separation from the City 
service, w^hich separation was not due to discharge 
or resignation for cause, such employee shall re- 
ceive the rate in the applicable salary range of the 
step corresponding to the step at which paid at the 
time of separation, and shall subsequently serve 
thereat for at least such period as is required for 
advancement to the next higher rate. 

(3) Starting Rate Folloxoing Promotion. 

When an employee is promoted from one position 
to a position in a higher class grade, such employee 
shall be paid at the rate of the lowest step in the 
higher salary range that will provide an increase 
in salary of approximately ten per cent (10%). 

(4) Accumulation of Service in One Class of 
Positions. 

Whenever an employee accepts work under a dif- 
ferent class of positions or in an unclassified 
(exempt) position in the City services on leave of 
absence and later returns to his former position, 
his term of employment under such different class 
of positions shall apply on and be added to his term 
of service in the former class upon his return to 
same for the purpose of determining the appropri- 
ate rate of pay within the range appropriate for 
the class; provided his employment in the City ser- 
vice has been continuous as hereinbefore defined. 

(5) Recommendations for Pay Advancements 
Within a Salary Range. 

The department head concerned shall recommend 
in writing to the Civil Service Commission the 
advance in salary of each employee in his depart- 
ment who has met the requirements for salary 
advancement within the range for his position in 
accordance with the service requirements specified 
in Section B (2) and (3). The recommendation 
shall include a certification that the employee has 
a performance rating of not less than 70, as com- 
puted in accordance with the Performance Rating 
Guide issued by the Civil Service Commission. 

Provided, however, in any case where the head 
of a department reports outstanding or excellent 
performance by an employee in his department with 
a performance rating of 90 or above, in accordance 
with the Performance Rating Guide of the Civil 
Service Commission, such employee may be ad- 
vanced two steps within the salary schedule of the 
position filled by the employee upon approval of 
said Commission where such higher salary is pro- 
vided for in the appropriation ordinance. The ef- 
fective date of increase shall be the first day of 
the next pay period following the date employee 
has been certified, as provided herein and approved 
by the Civil Service Commission.

tended to be filled by persons with a state license 
to practice as a Pratical Nurse. In cases where, due 
to a shortage of licensed personnel, practical nurses 



may be employed who have rot yet obtained a 
license, such personnel shall be paid at the appro- 
priate rate in the salary range next below that 
prescribed for Practical Nurses herein. 

(3) Limitations of Available Funds. 

All ordinary and special compensation provisions 
herein shall be effective only in the event suffi-

JOURNAI^CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO 



December 22, 1958 



2. Each employee who has been on duty dis- 
ability whose time on such disability plus 
regular working time equals six months or 
more of service since the date as of which 
the latest previous vacation allowance was 
computed shall be granted vacation, as pro- 
vided in paragraph 1 above as if all time was 
working time. 

3. In the event the employee has not taken 
his vacation as provided herein by reason of 
separation from service, other than by dis- 
charge for cause, he, or in the event of death, 
his widow or estate, shall be entitled to re- 
ceive his prevailing salary for such unused 
vacation period. 

4. The department head shall designate when 
the vacation shall be taken. 

(c) Any employees of the City of Chicago who 
have rendered service to the County of Cook, 
the Chicago Park District or the Forest Preserve 
District or the Metropolitan Sanitary District of 
Greater Chicago shall have the right to have 
the period of such service credited and counted 
for the purpose of computing the number of 
years of service as employees of the City for 
vacation credit only. 

(3) Sick Leave. 

Any employees, except those in the classes who 
are employed on a per diem basis, may be given 
sick leave with pay for periods not exceeding twelve 
(12) working days in the aggregate during each 
calendar year on account of sickness or related 
cause for absence which may be considered by the 
department head a sufficient and legitimate excuse 
for the employee's failure to be present and in 
attendance upon his duties; provided that the rea- 
son for the absence and the good faith of the em- 
ployee is making the application for such leave 
shall be shown to the department head by such 
reasonable evidence as may be required upon a form 
prescribed by the Civil Service Commission. 

(4) Accumulation of Sick Leave Credit. 

Sick leave credit earned by an employee subse- 
quent to January 1, 1959, shall accrue to a maxi- 
mum of one hundred and twenty (120) work days 
at the rate of 12 days per year less days of sick 
leave used by the employee. Records of sick leave 
credit and use shall be maintained by each depart- 
ment subject to examination and audit by the 
Comptroller, Civil Service Commission or other 
agency authorized by the Mayor. Severance of em- 
ployment prior to the taking of all or any part of 
such sick leave terminates all rights for compensa- 
tion hereunder. 

(5) Extended Sick Leave. 

Vacation and sick-leave periods may be com- 
bined, but only in the event that long-continued 
sickness of the employee warrants such course. In 
an unusual case of an employee whose continued 
sickness extends beyond the amount of vacation 
and sick leave earned by the employee, a request 
for extended sick leave with pay may be submitted 
to the Committee on Finance of the City Council 
for approval, together with the recommendation of 



the department head concerned and the Civil Serv- 
ice Commission. When such extended sick leave is 
granted, it shall be the duty of the department 
head to maintain surveillance over the case and he 
shall have the power and duty to terminate such 
leave when employee is certified as able to return 
to work by a competent physician or other prac- 
titioner. 

Provided, however, that the foregoing provisions 
are not applicable to the members of the Police and 
Fire Departments and civilian crossing guards. 

F. Adminstration and Maintenance of Compen- 
sation Plan. 

(1) Responsibilities of the Mayor and the Bud- 
get Director for Compensation Adminis- 
tration. 

The Mayor shall have over-all responsibility for

administration and maintenance of the compensa- 
tion plan. 

The Budget Director shall assure that the com- 
pensation of City positions provided for in the 
annual budgets for personal services are in accord- 
ance with the class grades of the respective posi- 
tions as established by the Civil Service Commis- 
sion and as specified in Schedule A of Rule I- Classi- 
fication, and in accordance with the salary schedules 
and provisions for their application as provided in 
these regulations. 

The Budget Director shall assure that all forms 
of compensation during a fiscal year are in accord- 
ance with the budget of funds therefor and shall 
interpret and explain the provisions of these regula- 
tions on compensation of employees as may be re- 
quired. 

(2) Responsibilities of the Civil Service Com- 
missiMi for Compensation Administration. 

The Civil Service Commission has over-all re- 
sponsibility for the work of checking and subject 
to the approval of the City Council approving 
salary changes to assure that the compensation of 
all civil service employees and temporary appointees 
in civil service positions is in strict accord with 
the official compensation plan as contained in these 
regulations. The Civil Service Commission will con- 
duct such checks of payrolls as required to carry 
out its responsibilities under the Cities Civil Service 
Act. The (Commission will periodically report to the 
Budget Director on the results of recruitment pro- 
grams with recommendations for changes in the 
compensation plan based on recruiting experience. 

(3) Grievances of Employees. 

Every qualified employee who has not been recom- 
mended for the advance in salary as provided in 
paragraph C (5) hereof, may petition the Advisory 
Board consisting of the President of the Civil Serv- 
ice Commission, Comptroller, Budget Director and 
Corporation Counsel. Such petition may be in the 
form of a letter setting forth the nature of the 
grievance. The Board shall examine into the reasons 
why said employee has not been so advanced. The 
decision of the Board shall be final. 

This Resolution shall be in effect on and after 
January 1, 1959 and until December 31, 1959.

(2) No pedestrian facing such signal indica- 
tions or indication shall enter the roadway until 
the green or "Go" signal indication is illuminated

particular section does not state that signs are re- 
quired, such section shall be effective even though 
no signs are erected or in place.

shall be printed, in letters plainly legible for a 
distance of one hundred feet, a notice designating 
such street as a play street. 

Such signs shall be kept in place until the close 
of the period of recreation each day that it is so 
used, and shall then be removed, together with the 
said barriers. 

27-209. Unauthorized signs, signals or mark- 
ings.) (a) No person shall place, maintain, or 
display upon or in view of any public way any unau- 
thorized sign, signal, marking, or device which pur- 
ports to be or is an imitation of or resembles an 
official traffic-control device or railroad sign or 
signal, or which attempts to direct the movement 
of traffic, or which hides from view or interferes 
with the effectiveness of any official traffic-control 
device or any railroad sign or signal, and no person 
shall place or maintain nor shall any public author- 
ity permit upon any public way any traffic sign or

ing is hereby declared to be a public nuisance and

27-212. Speed Limits.) The provisions of Arti- 
cle VI of the "Uniform Act Regulating Traffic on 
Highways" shall be applicable on all streets within 
and under the jurisdiction of the city. The absolute 
statutory urban speed limit shall be 30 miles per 
hour in streets and 15 miles per hour in alleys. The 
absolute statutory non-urban speed limit shall be 
65 miles per Ivour. Where the Commissioner of 
Streets and Sanitation has determined on the basis 
of an engineering or traffic investigation that the 
said speed limits are greater or less than is reason- 
able or safe with respect to the conditions found 
to exist at any place or along any part or zone of 
any street or highway, but not of any alley, the 
said urban speed limits may be increased but not in 
excess of 65 miles per hour and may be diminished 
but not to less than 20 miles per hour and said 
non-urban speed limit may be diminished but not to 
less than 35 miles per hour, when such determina- 
tion is approved by an ordinance of the city council. 
Such ordinance altering said speed limits shall be 
enforceable when appropriate signs giving notice of 
the limits are erected at the proper places along 
the proper part or zone of the street or highway. 

27-213. Minimum Speed Regulation.) No per- 
son shall drive a motor vehicle at such a slow speed 
as to impede or block the normal and reasonable 
movement of traffic except when reduced speed is 
necessary for safe operation of his vehicle or in 
compliance with law. 

Turning Movements. 

27-214. Turning at intersections.) The driver 
of a vehicle intending to turn at an intersection 
shall do so as follows : 

(a) Right turns. Both the approach for a right 
turn and a right turn shall be made as close as 
practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the 
roadway. 

(b) Left turns on two-way roadways. At any 

intersection where traffic is permitted to move in 
both directions on each roadway entering the in- 
tersection, an approach for a left turn shall be 
made in that portion of the right half of the road- 
way nearest the center line thereof and by passing 
to the right of such center line where it enters 
the intersection or on that portion of the roadway 
that may be specifically designated for such purpose 
by appropriate markings, and after entering the 
intersection the left turn shall be made so as to 
leave the intersection to the right of the center line 
of the roadway being entered. Whenever practicable 
the left turn shall be made in that portion of the 
intersection to the left of the center of the inter- 
section. 

(c) Left turns on other than two-way road- 
ways. At any intersection where traffic is restricted 



to one direction on one or more of the roadways, 
the driver of a vehicle intending to turn left at 
any such intersection shall approach the intersec- 
tion in the extreme left-hand lane lawfully available 
to traffic moving in the direction of travel of such 
vehicle or on that portion of the roadway that may 
be specifically designated for such purpose by ap- 
propriate markings, and after entering the inter- 
section the left turn shall be made so as to leave 
the intersection, as nearly as practicable, in the 
left-hand lane lawfully available to traffic moving 
in such direction upon the roadway being entered. 

(d) Right-of-Way on Left turn. The driver of 
a vehicle within an intersection intending to turn 
to the left shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle 
approaching from the opposite direction which is 
within the intersection or so close thereto as to con- 
stitute an immediate hazard, but said driver, having 
so yielded and having given a signal when and as 
required, may make such left turn and the drivers 
of all other vehicles approaching the intersection 
from said opposite direction shall yield the right-of- 
way to the vehicle making the left turn. 

(e) When authorized markers, buttons, or other 
indications are placed within an intersection indicat- 
ing the course to be traveled by vehicles turning 
thereat, no driver of a vehicle shall disobey the 
directions of such indications. 

27-215. Limitations on turning around.) The 

driver of any vehicle shall not turn such vehicle 
so as to proceed in the opposite direction, upon any 
street or part of any street where such turns are 
permitted, at any point closer than one hundred 
feet to any street intersection nor when such turn 
cannot be made in safety and without interfering 
with other traffic. 

27-216. Limitations on turning around on boule- 
vards.) It shall be unlawful for the operator of 
any vehicle to turn such vehicle in any boulevard 
so as to proceed in the opposite direction, unless 
appropriate signs are erected to permit such turns.

in the opposite direction in the territory bounded 
by and including E. and W. Lake street on the 
north, N. and S. Wabash avenue on the east, E. 
and W. Van Buren street on the south, and N. and 
S. Franklin street on the west, unless signs are 
erected to permit such turns. The commissioner of 
streets and sanitation is authorized to determine 
those places in said area where such turns may be 
permitted on the roadway and to erect appropriate 
signs giving notice thereof. 

27-218. No-turn signs.) Whenever authorized 
signs are erected indicating that no right or left 
turn or turn in the opposite direction is permitted, 
no driver of a vehicle shall disobey the directions 
of any such sign. 

One-Way Streets and Alleys. 

27-219. Movement of traffic on one-way streets 
and alleys.) Upon those streets and parts of 
streets and in those alleys so designated as one-way 
streets or alleys, vehicular traffic shall move only 
in the indicated direction when signs indicating the 
direction of traffic are erected and maintained at 
intersections and alleys where movement in the 
opposite direction is prohibited. 

27.220. One-way restrictions during certain peri-

other vehicles approaching the intersection on said 
through street shall yield the right-of-way to the 
vehicle so proceeding into or across the through 
street. 

b) After the operator of a vehicle has stopped

reasonable for the existing conditions or shall stop 
if necessary and shall yield the right-of-way to 
other vehicles which have entered the intersecting 
roadway either from the right or left or which are 
approaching so closely on said intersecting roadway 
as to constitute an immediate hazard, but said 
driver having so yielded may proceed at such time 
as a safe interval occurs. 

27-226. Obedience to signal indicating approach 
of railroad train.) (a) Whenever any person 
driving a vehicle approaches a railroad grade cross-

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

An Ordinance 
To regulate the production and emission of 
smoke, the constituent parts thereof, fly ash, 
soot, cinders, toxic or radioactive substances, 
waste, noxious or obnoxious acids, fumes, oxides, 
gases vapors, odors, dusts, particulate, solid, or 
liquid matter or any other materials that are of 
such character as to create atmospheric pollu- 
tion, from any stack, chimney, portable boiler, 
vehicle, process, open fires, or other source, with- 
in the jurisdiction of the City of Chicago; to pro- 
hibit emissions of such substances beyond defined 
limits, to define a nuisance respecting the same 
and to provide special limitations or provisions 
for processes and equipment with respect to 
which feasible methods of measurement and con- 
trol of emissions have yet to be developed; to 
establish a Department of Air Pollution Control ; 
to provide for appointment and duties of its 
officers and employees; to provide for its admin- 
istration and enforcement; to provide for an 
Air Pollution Control Committee, a Technical 
Advisory Board, and an Appeal Board; to pro- 
vide for permits for the installation, construc- 
tion, reconstruction, addition to, alteration, 
repair, and use of fuel and refuse-burning plants, 
processes, equipment and devices, and smoke 
abatement, dust-arresting and air pollution con- 
trol equipment or devices, and for fees for the 
same; to regulate the sale, use and consumption 
of certain solid fuels; to regulate the sale of 
equipment and devices; to provide for inspections 
and tests of fuel and refuse-burning equipment 
and devices, plants and processes and for the

for the violation of the provisions of this Ordi- 
nance; and to repeal all former ordinances and 
amendments thereof conflicting therewith. 

Whereas, air pollution in all its forms, including 
smoke, vapors, dusts, and wind-borne matter, is a 
menace to the health, safety, and economy of all 
citizens; and 

Whereas, preventable air pollution can be cor- 
rected or removed as a public hazard through intel- 
ligent action involving engineering, science, equip- 
ment, research and education; and 

Whereas, the excessive emissions of smoke and 
other air contaminants are causing atmospheric 
pollution within the corporate limits of the City of 
Chicago which ought to be abated, and the result- 
ant deleterious effect upon the public health and 
welfare, property and business, requires the adop- 
tion of a comprehensive and integrated plan for 
smoke and air pollution control; now, therefore.

The "Ringelmann Chart," as published and de- 
scribed in the U. S. Bureau of Mines Information 
Circular 6888, and on which are illustrated grad- 
uated shades of gray to black for use in estimating 
the light obscuring capacity of smoke, shall be the 
standard for determining the appearance, density 
or shade of smoke. Observations of smoke emissions 
under this chapter shall be made by comparing the 
observed density of smoke with the Ringelmann 
Chart numbers. Where the density of the smoke 
as observed falls between two consecutive Ringel- 
mann Chart numbers, the lower Ringelmann num- 
ber shall be considered the density of the smoke 
observed. 

"Smoke units" represent the number obtained 
by multiplying the density of the smoke observed 
so determined in Ringelmann Numbers by the 
time of emission in minutes. For the purpose of 
this calculation, a Ringelmann density reading shall 
be made at least once every minute during the 
period of observation; and each reading shall be 
multiplied by the time in minutes during which it 
is observed. The various products thus obtained 
shall be added together to give the total number of 
"smoke units" observed during the total period 
under observation. 

Emission of Particulate Matter. 

17-24. Subject to the provisions of Sections 
17-25 and 17-26, it shall be unlawful within the 
City of Chicago for any person owning or in charge 
of any fuel-burning, combustion or process equip- 
ment or device, or any portable boiler, to cause. 



suffer or allow the emission from any such source 
of any particulate matter except in conformity with 
the limits set forth as follows : 

(1) The basic limitation on the average emis- 
sion into the atmosphere of particulate matter 
from any single such source of emission shall be 
0.35 grains per cubic foot of gas measured at a 
temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit and a pres- 
sure of 30 inches of mercury, under steady con- 
ditions, provided that for emissions at levels 100 
feet or more above grade, the basic limitation shall 
be increased by the amount of particulate matter 
of less than 10 microns in size, if any, up to a 
maximum increase of 0.03 (H/lOO)^ grains per 
scf, where H is the height of discharge in feet 
above grade. 

(2) The limitation on the emission of that 
portion of the particulate matter which is 44 mi- 
crons in size or larger from any single such source 
shall be 0.21 grains per scf. 

The foregoing requirements shall be measured 
by the methods for dust reporting apparatus as in 
current use as outlined in the Tentative Code for 
dust separating apparatus of the American Society 
of Mechanical Engineers, which is hereby made a 
part of this chapter by reference, or in accordance 
with modified procedures mutually agreed upon by 
the Director and such person. A copy of said Tent- 
ative Code shall be kept on file in the office of the 
Department subject to examination by interested 
persons. 

(3) A specified volume ratio, or other suitable

of fuel-burning, combustion or process equipment 
or devices, which constitute potential sources of 
emission of particulate matter; provided, however, 
that with respect to coal burning combustion equip- 
ment the basic limitations set forth in sub-para- 
graph (1) of this section shall be adjusted to a 
gas volume based upon 50 per cent excess air. 

(4) All existing coal burning combustion equip- 
ment shall meet the limitations set forth in sub- 
paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) of this section within 
five years from the effective date of this chapter. 

(5) Until such time as definitive standards are 
established and/or are applicable, emissions of par- 
ticulate matter from all fuel-burning, combustion 
or process equipment or devices shall not exceed 
emissions which would result from operations in 
accordance with existing normal good operating 
practice.

17-36. The Director is hereby authorized to 
issue notices of violation for the purpose of giving 
notice to persons allegedly violating any of the 
provisions of this chapter or other ordinances re- 
lating to atmospheric pollution. If at the time of 
any orginal inspection, or annual inspection, or any 
other inspection, it is found that any fuel-burning, 
combustion or process equipment or device, or 
premises, is being operated or managed or is in 
such a condition or so installed that smoke, par- 
ticulate, or other matter is being emitted or may 
be emitted therefrom in violation of any emission 
limitation or other requirement or jurisdiction pro- 
vided in this chapter, the Director shall give notice 
in writing to any or all persons owning, operating, 
or in charge of such equipment or device, or prem- 
ises, of the defective equipment or device, condition

given by any inspector or other properly trained 
authorized agent of said Director, hy delivering 
such notice to any person owning, operating, or in 
charge of the equipment or device, or premises, 
involved, or by leaving a copy thereof with a per- 
son in charge of such equipment, device, or prem- 
ises, or by mailing a copy directed to the last 
known address of the person to be notified. Such 
notice may direct the alleged violator to appear 
and to present such notice at a designated office 
of the Department in the City Hall or the Central 
Office Building at the date and hour specified there- 
on for the purpose of conferring with respect to 
the alleged violation and the corrective measures, 
if any, which should be taken. Such notice may 
contain a demand upon such person or persons to 
discontinue use of such equipment or device, or 
premises, until the correction thereof has been ap- 



proved by the Director. Such notice shall allow up 
to ten (10) days' time to correct the equipment or 
device, or condition or operation, and report com- 
pliance to the Director. 

Failure to comply with such notice within ten 
(10) days from its' date, or within any extension 
of time granted under Section 17-73 hereof, shall 
be a violation of this section and, upon such failure, 
the Director may revoke any existing certificate 
of operation for such equipment or device.

ual variance for such equipment in accordance with 
Section 17-74. 

The foregoing restrictions shall not apply with 
respect to the burning of combustible refuse in 
such equipment in accordance with rules and reg- 
ulations issued by the Director. 

Solid Fuel-Conditions for Use of. 

17-39. A solid fuel containing volatile matter 
in excess of 23% on an ash free and moisture free 
basis shall be considered a low volatile solid fuel 
provided it meets the same standards in regard to 
smoke production as a low volatile solid fuel, and 
subject to the following conditions in order to as- 
certain whether or not such standards are met: 

Adequate supplies of such solid fuel shall be 
made available to the Director to conduct such 
reasonable tests as he shall deem necessary to 
determine that such fuel meets the standards here- 
inbefore established. The reasonable expense of any 
such tests shall be borne by the person seeking 
the approval of such solid fuel. 

The Director shall maintain and, upon request, 
furnish a list of brands or trade names of solid 
fuels which have been tested for conformity with 
the provisions of this chapter and which as a result 
of such tests have been approved. 

Solid Fuel when not Low Volatile- 
Equipment Required. 

17-40. Solid fuel, other than low volatile solid 
fuel, may be used or consumed only in mechanical 
combustion equipment or mechanically fired appar- 
atus; except that after suitable inspections and

installation, such exemption may be granted by the 
Director on good cause shown. Upon complaint in 
writing by any such person, setting forth that it is 
impossible in the operation of any plant, fuel-burn- 
ing, combustion or process equipment or device, or 
apparatus, to operate the same in complete compli-

Director that the acquisition and installation of the 
proper equipment, process, device, or appliance, or 
control equipment, will be effected within a reason- 
able period of time, stating specifically the nature

rector on investigation by him of the facts, that 
said complaint is well grounded, the Director is au- 
thorized to permit the operation of such plant, fuel- 
burning, combustion or process equipment or de- 
vice, or apparatus, for a reasonable period of time 
within which period the necessary equipment, proc- 
ess, device, appliance, means or methods, or control 
equipment, is to be acquired and installed; provided,

further reasonable extensions of time upon proof of 
extenuating circumstances, and that an order of 
the Director denying a complaint for a period of 
grace or an extension of time shall be subject to 
review by the Appeal Board, as hereinabove pro- 
vided. During any such granted period, such per- 
sons shall not be subject to the fines and penalties 
hereinafter provided for the non-compliance sought 
to be remedied; if, however, such person wilfully 
fails in the time allowed to conform with the applic- 
able provision or provisions of this chapter, or to 
comply with his assurance and agreement, he shall 
be subject to all applicable fines and penalties herein 
provided dating from the date of the beginning of

tation of adequate proof, that because of conditions 
beyond control compliance with any provision of 
this chapter or other ordinance relating to atmos- 
jiheric pollution, or with the Code of Recommended 
Practices, or any rule, regulation, requirement or 
order of the Director or of the Appeal Board, or the 
failure of the Director to act on any complaint, will 
result in an arbitrary and unreasonable taking of 
property or in the practical closing and elimination 
of any lawful business, occupation or activity, in 
either case without a sufficient corresponding bene- 
fit or advantage to the people in the reduction of 
atmospheric pollution; in such case, there shall be

In determining under what conditions and to 
what extent a variance from any of said require- 
ments is necessary and will be permitted, the Ap- 
peal Board shall exercise a wide discretion in weigh- 
ing the equities involved and the advantages and 
disadvantages to the public health, safety and wel-

son fails to appear at such hearing or if upon such 
hearing the Director shall find and determine that 
the violations are due to defective equipment or 
equipment which is incapable of being operated 
within the maximum emission limitations estab- 
lished by or under this chapter, or that corrective 
measures previously ordered by the Director have 
not been employed to eliminate the causes produc- 
ing the violations, he may enter an order revoking

Subject to the provisions for registration and transfer contained herein and in the Ordinance, this 
Bond shall have all of the qualities of a negotiable instrument under the Law Merchant and the Nego- 
tiable Instrument Law of the State of Illinois, and shall be transferable by the registered owner at the 
principal office of the Registration Agent in the City of Chicago, Illinois, upon surrender and cancellation 
of this Bond, and thereupon a new Registered Bond of the same series without coupons of the same prin- 
cipal amount and interest rate and of the same maturity will be issued to the transferee as provided in 
the Ordinance and upon payment of the transfer charges therein prescribed. The City, each Paying 
Agent, the Fiscal Agent, the Registration Agent and any other person may treat the person in whose 
name this Bond is registered as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment hereof

been performed in due time, form and manner as required by the Constitution and Statutes of the State 
of Illinois. Neither this Bond nor the payment of the principal of this Bond nor any part thereof, nor

Bond.

interest hereon, but only for the performance of his official duties as required by law.

spond with the name as written on the face of the 
within Bond in every particular, without alteration or 
enlargement or any change whatsoever. 

Section 2.05. Date of Registered Bonds. Registered Bonds shall be dated as of the date of issue, 
except that Registered Bonds, issued upon exchanges and transfers of Registered Bonds and upon 
exchanges of Coupon Bonds for Registered Bonds shall be dated so that no gain or loss of interest shall 
result from such exchange or transfer. Each Registered Bond shall bear interest from the interest payment 
date next preceding the date thereof unless it is dated as of an interest payment date, in which event 
it shall bear interest from the date thereof, or unless it is dated prior to the first interest payment date, 
in which event it shall bear interest from the date of the Coupon Bonds of the same Series. 

Section 2.06. Delivery of Bonds — Matured Coupons. Before delivering any Coupon Bond all 
coupons thereon then matured shall be cut off and cancelled, except that Coupon Bonds issued for 
exchange purposes shall bear such coupons as may be necessary in order that no gain or loss of interest 
shall result from any exchange of a Registered or temporary Bond for a Coupon Bond, or from any 
exchange of a Coupon Bond bearing or accompanied by coupons which at the time of exchange are 
matured and unpaid, and for the payment of which no provision shall have been made as herein provided. 

Section 2.07. Negotiability. All the Bonds and coupons issued pursuant to this Ordinance, subject

Negotiable Instrument Law of the State of Illinois. The Coupon Bonds, except while registered as to 
principal otherwise than to bearer, shall pass by delivery. The registration of any Coupon Bond as to 
principal only shall not affect the negotiability of its coupons, which shall remain payable to bearer, and 
pass by delivery, whether or not the Bond to which any coupon appertains is registered. The City, each 
Paying Agent, the Fiscal Agent of the City, the Registration Agent and any other person may treat the 
bearer (or if such Bond be registered, the registered owner) of any Coupon Bond, the registered owner 
of any Registered Bond, the bearer of any Coupon Bond registered to bearer, and the bearer of any

thereof and for all other purposes, and neither the City nor any Paying Agent nor the Fiscal Agent nor 
the Registration Agent shall be affected by any notice or knowledge to the contrary, whether such Bond 
or coupon shall be overdue or not. All payments of or on account of interest to any bearer of any coupon, 
or to any registered owner of any Registered Bond (or to his registered assigns), and all payments of or 
on account of principal to any bearer (or if such Bond be registered, the registered owner, or to any 
bearer of any Bond registered to bearer) of any Coupon Bond, or to any registered owner of any Regis- 
tered Bond, shall be valid and effectual and shall be a discharge of the City, of the Paying Agent and 
of the Fiscal Agent, in respect of the liability upon the Bond or coupon or claim for interest, as the 
same may be, to the extent of the sum or sums so paid. 

Section 2.08. Registration. The City will cause to be kept at the principal office of the Registration 
Agent referred to in Section 8.02 in Chicago, Illinois, at all times while any of the Bonds containing 
provisions for registration and transfer shall be outstanding and unpaid, books for the registration and 
transfer of such Bonds. Upon presentation at such office for such purpose by any bearer of any Coupon 
Bond containing provisions for registration as to principal only, the City will, under such reasonable regu- 
lations as (with the approval of the Registration Agent) it may prescribe from time to time, register, or 
cause to be registered therein in the name of the bearer or his nominee, the ownership, as to principal only, 
of any such presented Coupon Bonds, such registration being noted on the Bonds. After such registration 
and notation, no transfer of any such Coupon Bond registered otherwise than as to bearer shall be valid 
unless evidenced by a written instrument of transfer, in form satisfactory to the Registration Agent, duly 
executed by the registered owner in person or by his duly authorized agent; but any such Coupon Bond so 
registered may be discharged from registration, and transferability by delivery be restored, by a like transfer 
to bearer similarly registered and noted, and after such transfer to bearer such Bond shall be a bearer 
bond. Any Coupon Bond containing provisions for registration may be registered as to principal only, or 
be transferred to bearer without cost to the Bondholder. 

Section 2.09. Transfer of Registered Bonds. Any Registered Bond containing provisions for transfer 
may be transferred pursuant to its provisions at the principal office of the Registration Agent in Chicago, 
Illinois, by surrender of such Bond for cancellation, accompanied by a written instrument of transfer, in 
form satisfactory to the Registration Agent, duly executed by the registered owner in person or by his 
duly authorized agent, and thereupon the City will issue, or cause to be issued, and delivered in the City 
of Chicago, in the name of the transferee or transferees, a new Registered Bond of the same series or 
issue, interest rate, principal amount and maturity, dated so that there shall result no gain or loss of 
interest as a result of such transfer. Registered Bonds without coupons may be issued in the denomina- 
tion of $25,000 or more. To the extent of denominations authorized in respect of any such Bond by the 
terms thereof or by the terms of this Ordinance or of any supplemental ordinance, one such Registered 
Bond may be transferred for several such Registered Bonds of the same series or issue, interest rate and 
maturity, and for a like aggregate principal amount, and several such Registered Bonds may be transferred 
for one or several such Registered Bonds, respectively, of the same series or issue, interest rate, maturity, 
and for a like aggregate principal amount. Any reasonable expense in connection with the registration, 
transfer, or exchange of or to Registered Bonds as defined herein shall be paid by the Bondholder. 

Section 2.10. Exchange of Bonds. The bearer of Coupon Bonds which at the time are not 
registered and the registered owner of Registered Bonds or Coupon Bonds registered as to principal in 
the aggregate amount of $25,000 or more may at any time, provided such Bonds shall not have been 
called for redemption, surrender the same for cancellation at the principal office of the Registration Agent, 
with all unmatured coupons attached, and in the case of Registered Bonds, or Coupon Bonds registered 
as to principal with instruments of transfer satisfactory to the Registration Agent, and shall be entitled 
to receive in exchange therefor an equal aggregate principal amount of Bonds of the same interest rate 
and maturity, of any one or more of the forms, of the series or issue pf which they are a part, and the 
City will execute and deliver in the City of Chicago, the Bonds necessary to make such exchange. 

Upon the issue of any Registered Bond, serial numbers covering the Coupon Bonds of the same 
series or issue, interest rate and maturity and of an equal aggregate principal amount shall be reserved. 



December 29, 1958 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS 



9369 



The serial numbers so reserved shall be endorsed on such Registered Bond, which may also bear such an 
endorsement or legend satisfactory to the Registration Agent as may be required to conform to usage or 
law with respect thereto. 

Whenever Registered Bonds with proper instruments of transfer, shall be surrendered to the Regis- 
tration Agent for exchange for Coupon Bonds of the same series or issue, of like interest rate and matu- 
rity, the City will execute and deliver in the City of Chicago in exchange, a like principal amount of 
Coupon Bonds of the same series or issue, interest rate and maturity, in bearer form, of the serial number 
or numbers so reserved upon the issue of the Registered Bond or Bonds so surrendered, bearing coupons 
so that no gain or loss of interest shall result from such exchange. Any reasonable expense in connection 
with the registration, transfer, or exchange of or to Registered Bonds as defined herein shall be paid by 
the Bondholder. 

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the City will, without any charge to the holder of 
any Registered Bond without coupons initially issued hereunder, upon written request of any such Bond- 
holder, deliver in exchange for any such Registered Bond other Registered Bonds without coupons of 
authorized denominations, or coupon Bonds with appropriate coupons attached, in an equal aggregate 
principal amount and of the same series or issue, interest rate and maturity. 

Section 2.11. Cancellation of Transferred or Exchanged Bonds and Status of New Bonds. In 
every case of an exchange of Bonds, and of a transfer of any Registered Bond, the surrendered Bonds and 
coupons, if any, shall be cancelled by the Registration Agent and surrendered to the City. As a condition 
of any such exchange (but not for any exchange of temporary Bonds for other temporary Bonds or for 
definitive Bonds) or of any registration or transfer, the City shall require the payment of a sum sufficient 
to reimburse it for any stamp tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed thereon. All Bonds 
executed and delivered in exchange for or upon transfer of Bonds so surrendered shall be valid obligations 
of the City, evidencing the same obligation as the Bonds surrendered, and shall be entitled to all the benefits 
and protection of this Ordinance to the same extent as the Bonds in exchange for or upon transfer of 
which they were executed and delivered. 

Section 2.12. Place of Payment and Notice. The Bonds and coupons may be presented for pay- 
ment at the principal office of the Depositary in the City of Chicago or at such other place or places, if 
any, as may be specified in the respective Bonds and coupons. All notices, requests or demands addressed 
to the City in respect to this Ordinance and of the Bonds and coupons shall be served or made at the office 
of the City Clerk in the City of Chicago, Illinois. 

Section 2.13. Bonds Mutilated, Lost or Destroyed. In case any Bond shall become mutilated in 
respect of the body of such Bond or the coupons, if any, appertaining thereto, or shall be believed by the 
City to have been destroyed, stolen or lost, upon proof of ownership satisfactory to the City and upon 
surrender of such mutUated Bond with its coupons, if any, at the office of the City Comptroller, or at 
any other office or agency of the City maintained for such purpose, or upon the receipt of evidence 
satisfactory to the City of such destruction, theft or loss, and upon receipt also of indemnity satisfactory 
to the City, and upon payment of all expenses incurred by the City for any investigation relating thereto, 
and for each new Bond issued under this Section, the City shall execute and deliver in the City of 
Chicago, a new Bond or Bonds of the same interest rate and maturity of the same series or issue, and for 
the same aggregate principal amount with the coupons, if any, appertaining thereto, of like tenor and 
date, bearing the same number or numbers or different numbers, with such notations as the City shall 
determine, in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation of the mutilated Bond and its coupons, 
if any, or in lieu of and in substitution for the Bond and its coupons, if any, so lost, stolen or destroyed. 
The City shall notify the Depositary in writing of any such exchange or substitution prior to delivery 
thereof. 

If any such destroyed, stolen or lost Bond shall have matured, payment of the amount due thereon 
may be made by the City on receipt of like proof, indemnity and payment of expenses. 

Any duplicate Bonds or coupons issued pursuant to this Section 2.13 shall be entitled to equal and 
proportionate benefits with all other Bonds issued hereunder. The City shall not be required to treat 
both the original Bond and any dupHcate Bond as being outstanding for the purpose of determining, the 



9370 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO 



December 29, 1958 



principal amount of Bonds which may be issued hereunder or for the purpose of determining any per- 
centage of Bonds outstanding hereunder, but both the original and duplicate Bonds shall be treated as 
one and the same. 

Section 2.14. Temporary Bonds. Until definitive Bonds shall be prepared the City may cause to 
be executed and delivered, in lieu of such definitive Bonds and subject to the same provisions, limitations 
and conditions as are applicable in the case of definitive Bonds, except that they may be in any denom- 
inations authorized by the City and shall be registrable as to principal and (except to the extent that 
interest thereon may be represented by coupons) interest and may be discharged from registration in the 
same manner and subject to the same provisions (except to the extent that such temporary Bonds are 
registrable as to both principal and interest) herein contained applicable to definitive Coupon Bonds, 
one or more temporary printed, lithographed or engraved Bonds in bearer form, without coupons, or 
with one or more coupons as may be authorized by the City, substantially of the same tenor and, until 
exchanged for definitive Bonds, entitled and subject to the same benefits and provisions of this Ordinance 
as definitive Bonds of the same series, interest rate and maturity issued hereunder. Temporary Bonds 
shall be exchangeable only for definitive Bonds of the same series or issue, maturity and bearing the same 
rate of interest. Temporary Bonds shall be exchangeable from time to time at the office of the City 
Comptroller, without expense to the holder, for definitive Bonds of like aggregate principal amount, when 
prepared, of the same series, interest rate and maturity as the case may be and of the denominations 
authorized. All temporary Bonds so surrendered shall be cancelled by the City. Without unnecessary delay 
the City will execute and will furnish such definitive Bonds, to be exchanged in the City of Chicago for said 
temporary Bonds upon surrender thereof to the City. The definitive Bonds shall be lithographed or 
engraved, in whole or in part, except that the text and reverse of the Bonds and coupons may be printed 
or reproduced from type composition. 

In connection with any exchange of temporary for definitive Bonds hereunder, the City may also make 
appropriate arrangements with the Depositary and the Fiscal Agent so that any holder may at his option 
deliver Bonds for exchange and receive, free of expense to such holder, Bonds on any such exchange at 
the office of the Depositary or Fiscal Agent, acting as agent for such holder. 

Section 2.15. Additional Bonds for Completion. If sufficient funds are not available from the 
proceeds derived from the Bonds authorized by Section 2.02 to pay the cost of completing the Improve- 
ments, other than the construction of hangars, according to the plans and specifications now on file in the 
office of the City Clerk, additional Bonds may be issued at any time and from time to time to pay the cost 
of completing such Improvements. Such additional Bonds shall be secured by this Ordinance and shall 
rank on a parity with the Bonds then outstanding and issued under Section 2.02. Such additional Bonds 
shall be designated "Chicago-O'Hare International Airport Revenue Bonds", with such appropriate and 
particular designation added to such title as the City Council may determine, and they shall be dated and 
bear such interest rate or rates (payable on January 1 and July 1 of each year) as may be determined by 
the City Council, and shall mature on January 1, 1999, and shall be subject to the same right of prior 
redemption as provided in Section 2.02, except as to redemption premium. Such additional Bonds shall be 
authorized by Supplemental Ordinance to be adopted by the City Council. Prior to final action by the 
City Council on such Supplemental Ordinance, the City shall hold at least one public hearing on the 
necessity and desirability of the issuance of such additional Bonds. Notice of this hearing shall be given by 
publication, at least one week prior to the time of hearing, in a newspaper having a general circulation in 
the City of Chicago, Illinois. Such Supplemental Ordinance shall prescribe the additional amounts to be 
allocated and credited to the Sinking Fund Account, in compliance with Section 5.03(2) Third (provided 
allocations to the Sinking Fund Account shall not commence earlier than the allocation provided for Bonds 
issued under Section 2.02), and the additional amounts to be allocated and credited to the Debt Service 
Reserve Account and Reserve Maintenance Account, and shall direct the issue and execution of the 
additional Bonds authorized thereby, but before delivery of such Bonds to any purchaser there shall be 
filed with the Depositary and Comptroller of the City, the following: 

(a) A copy, certified by the Clerk of the City Council, of the Supplemental Ordinance of the 
City Council fixing the date, interest rate or rates the Bonds are to bear, the numbers thereof, the

purpose of the issue, prescribing the additional amounts to be allocated and credited to the Debt 
Service Reserve Account, Sinking Fund Account, and Reserve Maintenance Account, the principal 
amount of the Bonds, and directing their execution. 

(b) A certificate signed by the Consulting Engineer showing: 

(i) The amount expended for the Improvements, other than hangars, to date of such 
certificate, and the amount of money in the Construction Fund credited to the General 
Construction Account then available for the construction of such Improvements; 

(ii) The amount of additional funds necessary to complete the construction of such Im- 
provements, other than hangars, and stating in the opinion of the signers the moneys in the 
Construction Fund credited to the General Construction Account are not sufficient to pay the 
cost of completing such Improvements and that the issuance of Bonds in the stated principal 
amount provided in such Supplemental Ordinance is necessary to provide funds for the comple- 
tion of such Improvements, and that the proceeds of such Bonds will be sufficient to pay the 
balance of the cost of such Improvements; 

(iii) The estimated completion date of such Improvements, other than hangars. 

(c) An opinion of Bond Counsel and the Corporation Counsel of the City stating that the signers 
are of the opinion that the issuance of such additional Bonds and the adoption of such Supplemental 
Ordinance have been duly authorized and that all conditions precedent to the delivery of such Bonds 
have been fulfilled. 

When the above referred to documents shall have been filed with the Depositary and the Comptroller, 
and when the Bonds described in the Supplemental Ordinance, mentioned in clause (a) above of this 
Section, shall have been executed and sold, said Bonds shall be delivered to the purchasers upon payment 
of the purchase price therefor. 

The proceeds of the sale of all such Bonds issued under the provisions of this Section 2.15, shall 
be credited to the respective accounts and in the manner provided in Article III. 

Section 2.16. Additional Bonds for Further Improvements and Extensions. In addition to the 
foregoing provisions of Section 2.15, additional Bonds may be issued urtder and secured by this Ordinance 
at any time or from time to time ranking on a parity with the Bonds then outstanding and issued under 
this Ordinance for the purpose of constructing additional improvements and extensions to the Airport and 
shall be authorized by a Supplemental Ordinance to be adopted by the City Council, which shall prescribe 
the additional amounts to be allocated and credited to the Sinking Fund Account, Debt Service Reserve 
Account and Reserve Maintenance Account, and which shall direct their issue and execution whenever the 
following conditions are met : 

(a) The amounts required to be credited to the date of the adoption of the Supplemental Ordi- 
nance authorizing such additional Bonds to the Interest Account, Debt Service Reserve Account, 
Sinking Fund Account, Reserve Maintenance Account, and Emergency Reserve Account, must have 
been credited to said accounts. 

(b) Such additional Bonds must be due and payable not earlier than the maturity date of any 
of the then outstanding Bonds authorized pursuant to this Ordinance. 

(c) If at the time any Bonds issued pursuant to Section 2.02 or Section 2.15 are outstanding, 
in whole or in part, the Net Revenues of the Airport, from all existing facilities and those proposed 
to be financed by such additional Bonds, as estimated by the Airport Consultant on the assumption 
that such Bonds issued pursuant to Section 2.02 or Section 2.15 will remain outstanding in whole or 
in part until maturity date thereof, for each fiscal year (commencing with the first full fiscal year 
next following the date of completion, as estimated by the Consulting Engineer, of the additional 
improvements and extensions for the purpose of which such additional Bonds are to be issued, and 
ending not earlier than the last full fiscal year next preceding maturity date of such Bonds issued 
pursuant to Section 2.62 or Section 2.15), shall be not less than (i) one and twenty-five hundredths 
times the sum of Principal and Interest Requirements for each such fiscal year of all Bonds then

whole or in part, leases in effect on the date of the adoption of such Supplemental Ordinance, between 
the City and air transportation companies, shall, on the assumption that such Bonds issued pursuant to 
Section 2.02 or Section 2.15 will remain outstanding, in whole or in part, until maturity date thereof, 
provide for the payment by such air transportation companies to the City, for the lease of space and 
facilities (including, without limitation, passenger ramp areas) at the Airport, of fixed rentals aggregat- 
ing for each fiscal year (commencing with the first full fiscal year next following the date of completion 
referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph (c) and ending not earlier than the last full fiscal 
year next preceding the maturity date of such Bonds issued pursuant to Section 2.02 or Section 2.15), 
not less than one and ten-hundredths times the sum of Principal and Interest Requirements for each 
such fiscal year of all Bonds then outstanding and of all such additional Bonds proposed to be issued.

(i) In the case of Bonds issued pursuant to Section 2.02, the amount which is required in each 
fiscal year to provide over a period of thirty-four fiscal years for the payment, when due, 
of the interest on such Bonds and for the retirement of all such Bonds by the end of such 
period ; 

(ii) In the case of any Bonds issued pursuant to Section 2.15, the amount which is required in 
each fiscal year to provide over a period of the lesser of thirty-four fiscal years or the number

ARTICLE III 
Custody and Application of Proceeds of Bonds 

Section 3.01. Disposition of Proceeds of Bonds. All proceeds received by the City upon the sale 
of Bonds issued pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.02 shall be deposited with the Depositary in trust 
and credited to a separate fund to be known as "Chicago-O'Hare International Airport Construction 
Fund." The moneys in the Construction Fund pending their application as provided in this Ordinance 
shall be subject to a lien and charge in favor of the holders of the Bonds issued and outstanding under this 
Ordinance and for the further security of such holders until paid out or transferred as herein provided and 
shall be accounted for as follows: 

(a) There shall first be set aside in the Construction Fund in a separate account to be designated 
"Interest During Construction Account" such amount of the proceeds derived from the sale of said 
Bonds under Section 2.02 as will be sufficient to pay the interest which will accrue and become pay- 
able on such Bonds up to and including January 1, 1962, and the amount so set aside shall be 
used to pay such interest. 

(b) The balance of the proceeds shall be set aside and accounted for in two separate accounts, to 
be known and designated respectively as "Hangar Construction Account" and "General Construction 
Account". There shall be deposited in the Hangar Construction Account an amount equal to the 
total estimated construction cost of all hangars on hangar sites, as shown by the plans, specifications 
and estimate of cost now on file in the office of the City Clerk. The term "hangar on a hangar site" 
as used in this Ordinance includes hangar buildings, aprons, facilities and fixtures on such site, and 
connections not on such site with any taxiway, roadway, water line, sewer line, drainage ditch and 
utility line serving such site. The remaining proceeds shall be deposited in the General Construction 
Account. The Improvements, excluding the hangars on hangar sites, as shown by such plans and 
specifications, are sometimes referred to in this Section 3.01 as the "General Facilities". 

Funds credited as aforesaid to the Hangar Construction Account shall be held and used solely for the 
construction of hangars on hangar sites, according to such plans and specifications, and any modifications

or alterations thereof ; provided, however, that such funds shall not be used for the construction of a hangar 
on any one hangar site in excess of the proportion of such funds that the estimated construction cost of 
such hangar, as shown by such plans and specifications and estimates of cost now on file in the office of 
the City Clerk, bears to the total estimated construction cost of all hangars on hangar sites, as shown by 
such plans, specifications and estimates of cost; and further provided that the full amount of funds 
to the credit of the Hangar Construction Account, as aforesaid, available under the foregoing provisions 
for the construction of a hangar on any one hangar site, shall be transferred from the Hangar Con- 
struction Account to the General Construction Account if at the end of a period of twenty-seven (27) 
months after the date of the sale of the Bonds authorized pursuant to Section 2.02, no contract shall 
have been let by the City for the construction of any such hangar; and further provided that any 
portion of such funds so to the credit of the Hangar Construction Account and available for the 
construction of a hangar on any one hangar site, which on the date of completion of such hangar 
(giving effect to any modifications or alterations of such plans and specifications), as certified by the 
Consulting Engineer, shall not have been used or obligated for the construction of such hangar, shall 
be transferred from the Hangar Construction Account to the General Construction Account. For the 
purposes of this Ordinance, any cargo building which, according to plans and specifications now on 
file in the office of the City Clerk, is to be constructed on a site leased or to be leased exclusively to a 
specified air transportation company, shall be considered to be a hangar and such site shall be considered 
to be a hangar site. 

Funds credited, as aforesaid, to the General Construction Account shall, except as hereinafter ex- 
pressly provided, be used solely for the purpose of constructing the General Facilities. 

After the General Facilities have been completed, as evidenced by the certificate of the Consulting 
Engineer, and if there be any balance remaining to the credit of the General Construction Account, such 
balance may, in the discretion of the City, in whole or in part, be deposited in the Sinking Fund Account 
or may remain to the credit of the General Construction Account available for use solely for the purpose 
of constructing additional improvements to the Airport recommended by the Consulting Engineer and 
approved by the Commissioner of Aviation and the City Council as being desirable for the purpose of 
meeting operational requirements in connection with the landing and take-ofT of aircraft at the Airport. 
Any such recommended additional improvements shall be constructed in accordance with plans and 
specifications approved by the Consulting Engineer and the Commissioner of Public Works of the City; 
provided, however, that any balance remaining to the credit of the General Construction Account on 
a date six months prior to the first date on which any Bonds shall be redeemable through the use of 
moneys in the Sinking Fund Account and for which no commitments shall have been made for the 
purpose of constructing such recommended additional improvements, shall be deposited in the Sink- 
ing Fund Account. 

All proceeds received by the City upon the sale of Bonds issued pursuant to the provisions of Section 
2.15 shall be applied by the City as follows: 

(a) If such Bonds shall be issued prior to January 1, 1962, the City Comptroller shall deposit 
with the Depositary in the Construction Fund for credit to the Interest During Construction 
Account an amount sufficient to pay the interest which will accrue and become payable on such 
Bonds up to and including January 1, 1962, and the amount so credited shall be used to pay such 
interest, and the balance of said proceeds shall be deposited with the Depositary in the Construc- 
tion Fund and credited to the General Construction Account. 

(b) If such Bonds shall be issued on or after January 1, 1962, there shall be deposited with 
the Depositary in the Construction Fund and set aside therein in the General Construction Account 
all proceeds from the sale of such Bonds, except any accrued interest received thereon, which 
accrued interest shall be deposited in the Interest Account. 

Proceeds credited pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph to the General Construction Account shall 
be used solely for the purpose of completing the construction of the General Facilities, and after the Gen- 
eral Facilities have been completed, as evidenced by the certificate of the Consulting Engineer, any balance

of such proceeds remaining to the credit of the General Construction Account shall be deposited in the 
Sinking Fund Account.

shall be applied by the City in the manner and for the purposes provided in the Supplemental Ordinance 
authorizing such Bonds.

Improvements referred to in Section 2.01) shall include all costs as defined herein and without intending 
to limit or restrict any such definition includes the following:

ment of interest on the Bonds during any construction period whenever there are no other funds 
available for that purpose. 

All transfers or disbursements from the Construction Fund shall be made by warrants on the City

lien, or attachment upon or claim affecting the right to receive payment of any of the moneys pay- 
able to any of the persons, firms or corporations named in such order which have not been released 
or will not be released simultaneously with the payment of such obligations, and in the event that any 
assignment of right to receive payment has been made and notice thereof has been given to the City 
and the City has accepted such assignment, the order directing payment shall recite that fact and 
direct the payment to be made to assignee thereof as shown by the records of the City. 

In respect to disbursements from the Construction Fund in the payment for work done in connection 
with the construction of any improvements, such written order on the Treasurer, signed by the Mayor and 
countersigned by the Comptroller shall in addition to the accompanying statement to be executed by the 
Commissioner of Public Works, be accompanied by a certificate signed by the Consulting Engineer certi- 
fying that the obligations in stated amounts have been incurred by the City, and that each item thereof is 
a proper charge in reasonable amount against the Construction Fund and has not been paid, and in so far 
as any such obligation was incurred for work, materials, equipment or supplies, such work was actually 
performed in the furtherance of the construction of the improvements or delivered at the site of the Air- 
port for that purpose, or delivered for storage or fabrication at a place or places approved by the Consult- 
ing Engineer and under the control of the City. 

Upon receipt of any such orders and accompanying certificates the Treasurer shall pay each such ob- 
ligation from this fund and the Depositary shall make disbursements in accordance with directions from 
the Treasurer. 

Section 3.02. Investments. The funds to the credit of the Construction Fund shall, as nearly as 
may be practicable, be continually invested and re-invested in direct obligations of the United States 
of America, which shall mature or which shall be subject to redemption by the holder thereof at the 
option of such holder not later than the respective dates as estimated by the City Comptroller and 
approved by the Consulting Engineer when such moneys will be required for the purposes intended. It 
shall be the duty of the City Comptroller to file with the Depositary from time to time the estimated 
dates when such funds will be required as approved by the Consulting Engineer and to direct the 
Depositary to make the investments through the Depositary or otherwise as herein provided of the 
moneys to the credit of the Construction Fund as provided by this Section. 

Obligations so purchased as investments shall be deemed at all times a part of the Construction Fund 
and interest accruing thereon and any profit realized from such investments shall be credited to the General 
Construction Account, and any loss resulting from the sale of such investments shall be charged to the 
General Construction Account. 

The City Comptroller shall sell at the best price obtainable or present for redemption any obligations

ARTICLE IV

Section 4.01. Purchase and Redemption. Bonds redeemable before maturity, as provided in this 
Ordinance or in any Supplemental Ordinance authorizing the issue of such Bonds, shall be subject to 
this Article. 

Moneys in the Sinking Fund Account shall be applied as rapidly as practicable to the retirement of 
Bonds, and the City Comptroller shall endeavor to purchase Bonds in the open market at the most advan- 
tageous price obtainable with reasonable diligence, such price not to exceed the call price of such Bonds 
on the next date for which a call price has been established. If Bonds cannot be purchased on such terms,

then the City Comptroller may advertise for tenders from the holders of any Bonds by notice published 
at least once in a financial newspaper in the City of New York and once in a daily newspaper of general 
circulation in the City of Chicago, Illinois, not less than fifteen days prior to the date set for receiving 
tenders. A copy of such notice shall be mailed to each of the Principal Underwriters and filed with the 
Depositary. No tenders shall be accepted at prices exceeding the call price of such Bonds on the next 
date for which a call price has been established; provided, however, if there is $50,000 or more in the 
Sinking Fund Account seventy days prior to any interest payment date on which such Bonds are redeem- 
able, such funds shall be used to call Bonds on the next redemption date so as to exhaust as nearly as 
possible all money in the Sinking Fund Account. 

The City Comptroller shall determine by lot, in any manner deemed by him to be fair, the serial 
numbers of the Coupon Bonds to be redeemed, drawing the same from the serial numbers of outstanding 
Coupon Bonds and the serial numbers then reserved against outstanding Registered Bonds and shall cer- 
tify to the Depositary the serial numbers so designated. 

When Bonds are redeemed or are acquired through purchase or tender as herein provided, the 
accrued interest due on such Bonds shall be paid from the Interest Account and the principal and pre- 
mium, if any, from the Sinking Fund Account and such Bonds shall be cancelled and not reissued. 

Section 4.02. Publication of Notice of Redemption. The City Comptroller shall cause notice of 
any intended redemption to be published in at least one daily newspaper printed in the English language 
and published, and of general circulation in Chicago, Illinois, and in at least one daily newspaper or a 
financial paper printed in the English language and published, and of general circulation in the Borough 
of Manhattan, the City of New York, State of New York (and if such Bonds are payable in one or 
more places as well as or in lieu of the Borough of Manhattan, the City of New York, in at least one daily 
newspaper printed in the English language and published, and of general circulation in each city in 
which the principal of any of the Bonds so to be redeemed is payable), once a week (on any 
business day of the week) for two successive calendar weeks (the first publication to be not less than thirty 
(30) days nor more than sixty (60) days prior to the redemption date), stating the redemption date and 
redemption price and designating the series and serial numbers of the Bonds to be redeemed by giving the 
individual numbers of each Bond or by stating that all Bonds with certain given numbers or letters have 
been called or that all Bonds between two stated numbers, both inclusive, have been called, for redemp- 
tion and requiring that such Bonds be then surrendered with, in the case of Coupon Bonds, all interest 
coupons maturing on or subsequent to the said redemption date at the oflSce of the City Treasurer or, at 
the option of the respective holders thereof, at the office of the Depositary or, at the office of the Fiscal 
Agent in the Borough of Manhattan, the City of New York, State of New York, or, at the office of any 
Paying Agent where the principal of and interest on the Bonds of such series may be made payable for 
redemption at the said redemption price, giving notice also that further interest on such Bonds will not 
accrue after the designated redemption date. If any of the Coupon Bond serial numbers so drawn shall 
be the serial numbers of Coupon Bonds then reserved against outstanding Registered Bonds, publication of 
the numbers of such Coupon Bonds shall be sufficient notice to the holders of Registered Bonds aff"ected. 

A similar notice shall also be mailed by the Registration Agent to the respective registered owners of 
any Bonds designated for redemption at least thirty (30) days but not more than sixty (60) days prior 
to the redemption date at their addresses appearing on the Bond registration books, which notice shall, in 
addition to setting forth the above information, set forth, in the case of each Registered Bond called only 
in part, the portion of the principal thereof which is to be redeemed ; provided that such mailing shall not 
be a condition precedent to such redemption and failure to mail or to receive any such notice shall not 
affect the validity of the proceedings for the redemption of such Bonds. 

In case of the redemption as herein permitted of all of the Bonds then outstanding, notice of redemp- 
tion shall be given by publication and mailing in the same manner as for partial redemption of Bonds, 
except that the notice of redemption need not specify the serial numbers of the Bonds to be redeemed.

Section 4.03. Deposit of Redemption Funds and Payment of Bonds. At or prior to the redemp- 
tion date specified in each such notice the City shall make available to the Depositary a sum of money 
sufficient to redeem, at the premium payable as hereinbefore provided, the Bonds designated for redemp- 
tion (and the called part of any Registered Bond called only in part) and to pay the interest accrued 
thereon up to said redemption date, such moneys to be applied by the Depositary as Paying Agent and

with, in the case of Registered Bonds, duly executed instruments of transfer at the principal office of 
the Depositary or at such other place or places, if any, as may be specified in such Bonds and coupons. 
After the receipt by the Depositary of such deposit, if any be required, such Bonds so called and the called 
part of any Registered Bond called only in part, whether or not presented for redemption, shall cease to 
be entitled to any benefit under this Ordinance other than the right to receive payment of the redemption 
price; no interest will accrue thereon on or after the redemption date specified in such notice; claims for 
interest, if any, appertaining to such Bonds and the called part of any Registered Bond called only in part 
maturing after that date, shall be void; and, except as to the uncalled part of any Registered Bond called 
only in part, the holders of Bonds so called for redemption shall look, after such redemption date, for the 
payment of such Bonds and accrued interest and premium only to the funds held by the Depositary and 
allocated for that purpose, as hereinbefore provided, and the City shall be relieved of all liability in respect 
thereto; all provided that the funds allocated as aforesaid remain available therefor. All Bonds so redeemed 
shall forthwith be cancelled and delivered to the City Comptroller, and no Bonds shall be issued hereunder 
in place thereof, except that if less than the entire principal amount of any Registered Bond shall be so 
redeemed upon presentation of such Registered Bond so called in part and proper instruments of transfer 
at or after the time fixed for the payment of said Bonds so called for redemption, payment of the redemp- 
tion price of the part thereof so called shall be made upon surrender and cancellation of such Registered 
Bond so presented and one or more Bonds of the same series, interest rate and maturity in coupon or 
registered form for an aggregate principal amount equal to the uncalled and unpaid balance of the princi- 
pal amount of such Registered Bond will be issued by the City and shall be delivered in the City of Chicago 
or sent by registered mail by the Registration Agent to the owner of such Registered Bond without expense 
to such owner. 

All money so paid to the Paying Agent for the redemption of particular Bonds or the called part 
thereof shall be held by it in trust to be applied on or after the redemption date to the payment thereof. 

The City Comptroller shall maike such suitable arrangements as he deems necessary or desirable to 
transfer or cause to be transferred funds to the Fiscal Agent and to any Paying Agent at whose office the 
Bonds so called for redemption may be presented and to arrange for the payment and cancellation of 
such Bonds.

the interest is to be paid on such date pursuant to Section 3.01. 

Second: Beginning with the fiscal year commencing January 1, 1962, to the Debt Service 
Reserve Account an amount (subject to the limitations hereinafter referred to) in each fiscal year 
until there shall be in this Account an amount equal to two years' interest requirements on all 
Bonds outstanding, all moneys in this Account to be retained by the Depositary and invested as in 
this Ordinance provided. All moneys in this Account shall be used and withdrawn to the extent 
necessary for the purpose of paying the Interest, Sinking Fund payments and the principal of 
the Bonds including premiums for prior redemption thereof in the event no other funds are 
available for such purposes. Whenever the deposits in the Debt Service Reserve Account exceed 
two years' interest on all Bonds outstanding, such excess shall be transferred to the Sinking Fund 
Account. Any moneys withdrawn to meet Interest and Sinking Fund requirements shall be 
replaced out of the first money available therefor. 

The amount allocated to the Debt Service Reserve Account in any fiscal year with respect to 
Bonds issued under Section 2.02 shall not exceed an amount that shall be specified in an 
Ordinance of the City approving the sale of said Bonds, a copy of which, duly certified as having 
been adopted by the City, shall be filed with the City Comptroller and the Depositary prior to 
the issuance and delivery of such Bonds. The additional amount to be allocated to the Debt 
Service Reserve Account in any fiscal year with respect to Bonds issued under Section 2.15 or 
Section 2.16 shall not exceed the amount provided for in the Supplemental Ordinance authorizing 
the issue of such Bonds. 

Third: Starting January 1, 1965 to the Sinking Fund Account, until there shall have been 
allocated to this Account, the amount, if any, of the Minimum Sinking Fund Payment as follows : 

As to Bonds issued under the provisions of Section 2.02, it shall be mandatory that there 
be set aside in each fiscal year beginning with the fiscal year 1965 and ending with the fiscal 
year 1998 an amount sufficient to retire a specified principal amount of Bonds by January 1st 
of the succeeding fiscal year, which respective principal amounts shall be the respective prin- 
cipal retirements represented in the computation of Principal and Interest Requirements of such 
Bonds, as defined in Section 2.16, and shall be set forth in an Ordinance of the City approv- 
ing the sale of such Bonds, a copy of which, duly certified as having been adopted by the City, 
shall be filed with the City Comptroller and the Depositary prior to the issuance and delivery 
of such Bonds. 

As to any additional Bonds issued under the provisions of Section 2.15, it shall be mandatory 
that there be set aside in each fiscal year beginning with the later of the fiscal year 1965 or the 
first full fiscal year commencing on or next f ollowing the date of delivery of such additional Bonds 
and ending with the fiscal year 1998, an amount sufficient to retire a specified principal amount 
of such additional Bonds by January 1st of the succeeding fiscal year, which respective principal 
amounts shall be the respective principal retirements represented in the computation of Principal 
and Interest Requirements of such additional Bonds, as defined in Section 2.16.

If additional Bonds are issued as provided by Section 2.16, the minimum amount to be 
credited to the Sinking Fund Account in each fiscal year occurring after the issuance of such 
additional Bonds shall be increased by an amount which shall be fixed in the Supplemental Ordi- 
nance authorizing the issuance of such additional Bonds; provided, however, that such Supple- 
mental Ordinance shall provide for additional amounts to be credited to the Sinking Fund 
Account sufficient to retire the principal of such additional Bonds at maturity. 

Retirement of Bonds in any fiscal year through purchases and redemptions pursuant to Sec- 
tion 4.01 by the application of funds to the credit of the Sinking Fund Account shall be pro- 
rated between: 

(a) The principal amount of Bonds issued as provided by Section 2.02; and 

(b) The principal amount of Bonds issued as provided by Section 2.15; and 

(c) The principal amount of Bonds issued as provided by Section 2.16; 

in proportion to the respective principal amounts to be retired through Minimum Sinking 
Fund Payments by January 1 of the next succeeding fiscal year as required by this Ordinance 
and the Supplemental Ordinance or Ordinances fixing the amounts to be credited in such fiscal 
year to the Sinking Fund Account. 

Fourth: Starting with the fiscal year commencing January 1, 1959, in each fiscal year to 
the Reserve Maintenance Account, out of the balance remaining after making any required 
deposits in such year to the Interest Account, the Debt Service Reserve Account and the Sinking 
Fund Account the sum of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000) in each fiscal year up to 
December 31, 1961 and the sum of Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($600,000) in each fiscal 
year thereafter, until there shall have been accumulated in the Reserve Maintenance Account 
the sum of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,500,000) ; provided, however, 
that if less than the amount required to be deposited in this Account in any fiscal year shall 
be so deposited, the requirement therefor shall nevertheless be cumulative and the amount of 
such deficiency shall be added to the amount required to be deposited in this Account in each 
fiscal year thereafter, until such time as such deficiency shall have been so deposited or until there 
shall have been accumulated in this Account the sum of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand 
Dollars ($2,500,000). 

In the event additional Bonds are issued under the provisions of Section 2.15, the limit set 
forth in the preceding paragraph for the contribution to the Reserve Maintenance Account in 
any fiscal year after December 31, 1961 and the limit set forth as to the amount which may be 
accumulated in said Account, shall be increased by amounts bearing the same ratio to the respec- 
tive amounts set forth as maximum in the preceding paragraph as the principal amount of Bonds 
issued under the provisions of Section 2.15 bears to the principal amount of Bonds issued under 
the provisions of Section 2.02. In the event additional Bonds are issued under the provisions of 
Section 2.16, the aforementioned maximums shall be increased in accordance with the provisions 
contained in the Supplemental Ordinance authorizing such Bonds. 

Moneys held for the credit of the Reserve Maintenance Account shall be held as a reserve 
for the purpose of paying the cost of major repairs, renewals and replacements of terminal 
buildings, landing areas, aprons, and related facilities, equipment or otherwise, at the Airport, 
whether caused by normal wear or tear or by unusual and extraordinary occurrences, provided 
the making of such repairs, renewals or replacements is approved by the Consulting Engineer, 
as evidenced by his certificate, and in the case of an insufficiency of moneys to pay the Operation 
and Maintenance Expenses, all expenses chargeable as Operation and Maintenance Expenses 
under the terms of this Ordinance; and shall be disbursed only for such purposes, except as 
hereinafter provided. Disbursements from the Reserve Maintenance Account for the purpose of 
paying the cost of major repairs, renewals and replacements, shall be made in the same manner, 
and subject to the same conditions, as is provided in Section 3.01 with respect to disbursements 
from the General Construction Account of the Construction Fund.

If at any time the amount in the Interest Account and the Debt Service Reserve Account 
shall be insufficient for the purposes of paying the interest on the Bonds as such interest becomes 
due, or for the purpose of making any of the required payments to the Sinking Fund Account, 
then the City shall transfer from the Reserve Maintenance Account to the Interest Account, Debt 
Service Reserve Account or Sinking Fund Account,, as the case may be, an amount sufficient to 
make up any such deficiency. 

Any moneys in the Reserve Maintenance Account which shall be used or transferred as afore- 
said, shall be restored by the City from the first available moneys in the Revenue Fund, subject 
to the same conditions as are hereinabove provided for deposits to the credit of this Account. 

Fifth: Emergency Reserve Account. To the Emergency Reserve Account out of the balance 
remaining, after making the deposits to the respective accounts hereinabove referred to, an 
amount in each fiscal year equal to the sum of the amounts included in Airport Expense as 
defined in the Airport Use Agreement for such year on account of depreciation and interest 
referred to in subparagraphs (1) (b) and (c) of Section 15.07 of the Airport Use Agreement. 

Moneys held to the credit of the Emergency Reserve Account shall be used to the extent 
hereinafter provided, and to the extent so used shall be treated as Revenues, for any period of 
time during which the Airport may be closed, by any order or direction of City or any other 
governmental authority or agency, or by any order or direction of any court of competent jurisdic- 
tion, for the landing or taking off of all turbo jet powered aircraft operated by Airline Parties 
as defined in the Airport Use Agreement which at the time are landing and taking off, in the 
course of normal operations, at one or more airports having facilities similar to those at the Air- 
port. Moneys to the credit of the Emergency Reserve Account shall be applied monthly and be 
so used to the aggregate extent, and only to such extent, that agreements between the City and 
such Airline Parties provide for the abatement of rentals in the event of such closing. 

Moneys held to the credit of the Emergency Reserve Account shall also be used at any time 
for the purpose of making required deposits to the Interest Account and Sinking Fund Account 
when there are no other funds available for such deposits. 

In addition to the foregoing, there may be deposited by the City from time to time in the 
Emergency Reserve Account such other sum or sums not constituting Revenues, as may be 
permitted by law. 

Sixth: To the extent that Revenues accrued during each fiscal year, as shown in the 
audited statement of the Independent Certified Public Accountants, referred to in Section 6.08, 
exceed Airport Expense for such fiscal year, as defined in Section 15.07(1) of the Airport Use 
Agreement, such excess shall be considered deferred income and as Revenues of the next 
succeeding year for all purposes of this Ordinance. 

All Revenues accrued during the fiscal year for which such audited statement is rendered, 
which Revenues have not been allocated for Operation and Maintenance Expenses, nor deposited 
or allocated for deposit in the several Accounts set forth in this Section 5.03 (2) First through 
Fifth, inclusive, nor considered Revenues of the next succeeding fiscal year, shall be allocated 
to the Sinking Fund and deposited therein as soon as practicable. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in any fiscal year in which the minimum Flight Fee is in 
effect as provided in the Airport Use Agreement, all Revenues accrued during such fiscal year in 
excess of the required allocations to Operation and Maintenance Expenses and the Accounts 
provided for in this Section 5.03(2), First through Fifth, inclusive, shall be allocated to the 
Sinking Fund. 

The City Comptroller at least fifteen days prior to any interest payment date and at least fifteen 
days prior to the principal payment date or redemption date of any Bonds shall make provision for 
and transfer from the proper account and deposit with the Paying Agent funds sufficient to pay the 
interest then due, redemption premium, if any, and the principal at maturity.

If and when there are sufficient funds in the Interest Account, Debt Service Reserve Account and 
Sinking Fund Account at any time to call and redeem all of the outstanding Bonds at the next succeeding 
redemption date, said funds shall be used for that purpose and said Bonds shall be called and redeemed 
on the next succeeding redemption date. 

Section 5.04. Exception as to Default. Anything in this Ordinance to the contrary notwith- 
standing, if the City shall comply with all other provisions of Section 5.03, the fact that the total deposits to 
be credited to the Sinking Fund Account, the Reserve Maintenance Account or the Emergency Reserve 
Account in any fiscal year shall be less than the amount required will not constitute an event of default 
under the provisions of this Ordinance. 

Section 5.05. Investment of Funds. All moneys held by the Depositary in the Revenue Fund may 
be invested in direct obligations of the United States of America which shall mature or which shall be 
subject to redemption by the holder thereof at the option of such holder prior to the date such funds shall 
be required for payment of Operation and Maintenance Expenses or for allocation to any Accounts. All 
moneys held by the Depositary to the credit of the Interest Account and Sinking Fund Account shall be 
invested, insofar as may be practicable, in direct obligations of the United States of America which shall 
mature or which shall be subject to redemption by the holder thereof at the option of such holder not later 
than fifteen days prior to the date such funds shall be required for payment of interest due on any Bonds 
for investments made for the account of the Interest Account and not later than fifteen days prior to the 
date provided for redemption of any Bonds for investments made for the Sinking Fund Account. Moneys 
held by the Depositary for the credit of the Debt Service Reserve Account, Reserve Maintenance Account, 
and Emergency Reserve Account shall be invested in direct obligations of the United States of America 
which shall mature or which shall be subject to redemption by the holder thereof at the option of such 
holder not later than five years from the date of purchase thereof. 

Obligations purchased as an investment of moneys in the Revenue Fund, or any Account named in 
the preceding paragraph, shall be deemed at all times to be a part of such Fund or Account. The interest 
accruing on and any profit realized from any investment of moneys in the Reserve Maintenance Account 
or Emergency Reserve Account shall be credited to such Account, and any loss resulting from such 
investment shall be charged to such Account, notwithstanding the fact that the amounts credited to the 
Reserve Maintenance Account exceed the maximum as provided by this Ordinance. Interest accruing on 
and profit realized from the investment of moneys in the Interest Account, Debt Service Reserve Account, 
Sinking Fund Account and the unallocated portion of the Revenue Fund shall be credited to the un- 
allocated portion of the Revenue Fund and allocated as Revenues in the order of priority provided by 
Section 5.03, and any loss resulting from any such investment shall be deemed an Operation and Main- 
tenance Expense and be restored to such Accounts or Fund from the first available Revenues.

with respect to the proper custody and application of Revenues in accordance with this Ordinance. 

Section 6.02. Equality of Bonds. All Bonds authorized hereunder shall rank equally as to security,

payable in such city may be presented for payment. 

Section 6.06. Limitation upon Amendatory Ordinances. The City v^dll not adopt any ordinance or

maintained or otherwise provide for (i) fidelity insurance or a fidelity bond or bonds covering all employees

All such policies shall name the City as an insured thereunder and such p>olicies or certificates of 
such insurance shall be deposited with the City Comptroller. Proceeds received by the City from any 
and all such insurance on account of damage to, or destruction of, any part of any City-owned property 
(except proceeds to be held in the Construction Fund as hereinafter provided) shall be held by the City 
Treasurer in the Chicago-O'Hare International Airport Revenue Fund in a special account as security 
for the Bonds issued hereunder until paid out as hereinafter provided. 

The City covenants that immediately after any substantial damage to or destruction of any part of 
any City-owned property at the Airport it will cause the Consulting Engineer to prepare or approve plans, 
specifications and estimate of cost for repairing or replacing the damaged or destroyed property (either in 
accordance with the original or a different design) , and to file copies of such estimate with the Treasurer, 
City Comptroller and Depositary, and the proceeds of all insurance referred to hereinabove shall be available 
for and to the extent necessary be applied to the repair, replacement or reconstruction of the damaged or 
destroyed property, and shall be disbursed in the manner and upon the showings hereinabove provided 
for in Section 3.01 for payments from the General Construction Account of the Construction Fund. 

The City covenants that in the case of any damage to or destruction of any part of any City-owned 
property at the Airport if the cost of renewing, replacing or reconstruction of the damaged or destroyed 
property, as estimated by the Consulting Engineer, shall not exceed the proceeds of insurance and other 
moneys available for such purpose, it will forthwith commence and diligently proceed with the immediate 
repair, replacement or reconstruction of the damaged or destroyed property according to plans and 
specifications prepared or approved by the Consulting Engineer. 

If such proceeds are more than sufficient for such purpose, the balance remaining upon completion 
of the renewing, repairing or restoration of the damaged or destroyed property shall be by order of the 
City Comptroller deposited by the Treasurer to the credit of the Sinking Fund Account. If such proceeds 
shall be insufficient for such purpose, the deficiency shall be supplied by the City from any moneys in the 
Reserve Maintenance Account. 

The proceeds of any such insurance received on account of damage to or destruction of any part of 
any City-owned property which are not applied or committed within eighteen months after their receipt 
by the City to renewal, replacement or reconstruction of the damaged or destroyed property (unless 
it has been prevented from so doing because of conditions beyond its control) shall be credited by the 
Treasurer on order of the Comptroller to the Sinking Fund Account, unless the City with the consent of 
the holders of a majority of the principal amount of all Bonds then outstanding shall otherwise direct. 

The provisions of the next preceding four paragraphs shall not be applicable to proceeds of any such 
insurance received on account of damage or destruction during construction of any improvement being 
constructed from moneys in the Construction Fund, but such proceeds shall be held by the City Treas- 
urer in the Construction Fund and used and applied in the same manner as is provided in Section 3.01 
with respect to the moneys in the Construction Fund available for the construction of such improvement. 

The proceeds of any fidelity insurance or fidelity bond shall be credited to the Revenue Fund and 
applied as any other Revenues. 

All insurance premiimis payable by the City with respect to the foregoing insurance shall be considered 
an Operation and Maintenance Expense except premiums for insurance on improvements during con- 
struction, which latter premiums shall be charged to the Construction Fund. 

The City shall deliver to the Depositary and mail to the Principal Underwriters in the month of 
March of each year a schedule signed by the City Comptroller setting forth the insurance policies then 
outstanding and in force upon or in connection with or incidental to the Airport, including the names 
of the insurers which have issued the policies and the amounts thereof and the property or risks covered 
thereby (including liability risks).

is deemed by the Depositary, upon advice of an independent insurance counselor, to be necessary or desir-

ance in the name of the City and bill the City therefor. 

Section 6.08. Accounts. The City covenants that it will keep and provide accurate books and 
records of account showing all Revenues received from the Airport and the rents, fees, rates or other

the Airport and that all such books and records shall be open at all times during business hours to the 
Depositary, to the Principal Underwriters, and to the holder or holders of not less than ten (10) per centum

remain outstanding, the City will prepare and file with the Depositary, Airport Consultant and the Principal 
Underwriters a statement of the Revenues and expenditures for such fiscal year and a balance sheet, taken 
at the close of such fiscal year, for the Airport accompanied by a certificate or opinion in writing of an 
Independent Certified Public Accountant of recognized standing, selected by the City and satisfactory to the 
Depositary. The City covenants that it will cause a consolidated summary of such Revenues and all 
expenditures and balance sheet for the Airport to be published, not later than one hundred and fifty days 
after the close of each fiscal year, in a daily newspaper printed in the English language and published and 
of general circulation in the City of Chicago, Illinois. Copies of such consolidated summary as so published 
shall be delivered to the Depositary and the Principal Underwriters and mailed to the Holders of Bonds 
requesting copies thereof. All the reports and other documents required under this Ordinance shall be 
available for inspection by the Holders of the Bonds at the office of the City Comptroller. 

Section 6.09. Maintenance of Powers. The City covenants that it will at all times use its best 
efforts to keep the Airport open for landings and takeolTs of aircraft of any type using facilities similar to 
those at the Airport and to maintain the powers, functions, duties and obligations now reposed in it pur- 
suant to law, and will not at any time voluntarily do, suffer or permit any act or thing the effect of which 
would be to hinder, delay or imperil either the payment of the indebtedness evidenced by any of the Bonds 
or the performance or observance of any of the covenants herein contained. If at any time the City is 
unable to keep the Airport open for airport purposes as herein provided, it will use its best efforts, to the 
extent permitted by law, to make such use (including use for other than airport purposes) and take such 
action with respect to the Airport so as to produce revenues therefrom in accordance with proper and 
efficient business practices. 

Section 6.10. Further Assurances. The City covenants that it will make or adopt and execute, or 
cause to be made, adopted and executed, any and all such further ordinances, acts, deeds, conveyances, 
assignments or assurances as may be reasonably required for effectuating the intention of this Ordinance, 
and for the better assuring and confirming unto the Holders of the Bonds of the rights and benefits 
provided in this Ordinance. The City further covenants that it will use its best efforts to enforce collection 
of all amounts due it from the use and operation of the Airport. 

Section 6.11. Prompt Acquisition and Construction. The City covenants that upon the receipt 

of the proceeds of Bonds issued under the provisions of Section 2.02, the Department of Public Works will 
forthwith proceed to construct the Improvements and that it will complete such construction with all 
expedition practicable in accordance with plans and specifications or approved alterations thereof. 

The Department of Public Works may employ an Independent Engineer to act as supervising engineer 
to co-ordinate the work of all engineers selected by the Department of Public Works with the advice of the 
Consulting Engineer to expedite all work to the end that all construction, authorized by this Ordinance, 
will be completed as early as possible.

and so that all lawful orders of any governmental agency or authority having jurisdiction in the premises 
shall be complied with (provided the City shall not be required to comply with any such orders so long as 
the validity or application thereof shall be contested in good faith) ; and that it will use its best efforts to 
see that the cost of such operation and maintenance shall at no time be in excess of Revenues reasonably 
available for such purposes so long as any of the Bonds remain outstanding. The City will, out of Rev- 
enues, from time to time, duly pay and discharge, or cause to be paid and discharged, all taxes (if any), 
assessments or other governmental charges lawfully imposed upon the Airport or upon any part thereof, 
or upon the Revenues, when the same shall become due, as well as any lawful claim for labor, materials, or 
supplies which, if unpaid, might by law become a lien or charge upon the Airport, or which might impair 
the security of the Bonds. 

Section 7.03. Consulting Engineer and Airport Consultant. The City covenants that while any of 
the Bonds issued hereunder are outstanding, it will continuously employ a Consulting Engineer experienced

at least 60 days prior to January 1 and July 1 of each fiscal year as to the fees for the landing of aircraft 
at the Airport during the six-month period commencing on each such January 1 and July 1 so that the 
Revenues will meet the requirements of this Ordinance. 

The Consulting Engineer shall inspect the Airport and make reports on the physical condition thereof 
and advise and make recommendations to the City in connection with the physical maintenance thereof. 
Copies of each report and recommendation of the Consulting Engineer shall be sent as soon as available, 
but not later than one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the commencement of each fiscal year to the 
Commissioner of Aviation and shall set forth the advice and recommendations of the Consulting 
Engineer with respect to the physical maintenance of the Airport and other advice to the end that the

in accordance with sound business principles and upon an efficient basis.

Improvements it will cause the Consulting Engineer to prepare a progress report in connection with the 
construction of the Improvements, including construction comparisons between the actual time elapsed 
and the actual costs and the estimates of such time and costs, which shall have been set forth in a state- 
ment prepared by the Consulting Engineer and filed with the City. Copies of such progress reports shall 
be filed with the Depositary and mailed to the Principal Underwriters and to the Holders of Bonds request- 
ing copies thereof.

(b) The City shall prepare the budget ordinance in a tentative form, and in this form shall make 
the ordinance conveniently available to public inspection for at least ten (10) days prior to final action 
thereon, by publication in the journal of the proceedings of the City or in such other form as the City 
may prescribe. Not less than one week after the publication of this tentative budget ordinance, and prior

appropriations be complied with. 

(c) Limitations on Expenses. The City shall not incur expenses for operation and maintenance of 
the Airport in any fiscal year in excess of the reasonable and necessary amount thereof, and the City shall 
not expend any amount or incur any indebtedness for such expenses for such year in excess of the amount 
provided therefor in the Budget for such fiscal year as finally adopted unless such expenditure is authorized

applicable to any provision for uncollectible accounts receivable. 

Section 7.05. Limitation on Sales of Airport Property. The City shall have the right to sell or 
otherwise dispose of any property, real or personal no longer necessary, appropriate or required for the

building or structure on such land for any necessary or incidental purpose relating to the operation of the 
Airport or for any purpose which in the opinion of the Airport Consultant does not in any way interfere 
with the operation of the Airport. Any income derived therefrom by City shall be considered Revenues.

Events of Default and Remedies on Default 

Section 8.01. Depositary and Paying Agent. The City Comptroller shall cause to be set up suitable 
accounts for the deposit of all Revenues, including particularly the funds set forth in Article V hereof, 
and for the payment of all Bonds and the interest thereon, and for all other payments provided or 
required by this Ordinance, and for the holding of all reserves created under this Ordinance, and he shall 
perform the duties herein imposed upon him by the terms of this Ordinance. The City Comptroller is 
hereby directed to make deposits of the proceeds of the sale of the Bonds and Revenues with The First 
National Bank of Chicago, a banking association, a qualified depositary. In the event of a successor or suc- 
cessors being appointed as authorized by Section 8.11, the City shall select a Depositary, which is a 
banking association or trust company, having a combined capital and surplus of not less than $10,000,000, 
for the deposit of funds to be held by the Depositary as provided in this Ordinance. The Depositary so 
selected, upon delivery to the City Comptroller of its written acceptance of such appointment, shall 
be deemed to be the successor Depositary. The Depositary shall be the Paying Agent of the City in the 
City of Chicago, and whenever the term "Depositary" is used herein the same shall mean and include 
the Paying Agent in the City of Chicago. 

Section 8.02. Registration Agent. The Depositary in the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, is 
hereby appointed as Registration Agent for the purpose of registering, transferring and exchanging the 
Bonds as in this Ordinance provided, and the City Comptroller agrees to take all legal action necessary 
or proper to constitute said Depositary as Registration Agent hereunder. 

Section 8.03. New York Paying Agent. Principal of fully Registered Bonds and principal and 
interest of Coupon Bonds shall also be payable at the Fiscal Agent of the City of Chicago in the City of 
New York. 

Section 8.04. Liability of Agents. The recitals of fact and all promises, covenants and agree- 
ments herein and in the Bonds contained shall be taken as statements, promises, covenants and agreements 
of the City, and neither the City Treasurer, City Comptroller, nor any Depositary duly appointed, nor any 
Registration Agent, Fiscal Agent or Paying Agent, assumes any responsibility for the correctness of the same, 
or makes any representations as to the validity or sufficiency of this Ordinance or of the Bonds or coupons, 
or shall incur any responsibility in respect thereof, other than in connection with the duties or obligations 
herein or in the Bonds assigned to or imposed upon them, respectively. 

Section 8.05. Security for Deposit. The City Comptroller is hereby authorized and empowered to 
take all necessary steps to require and secure from each Depositary, Paying Agent and Fiscal Agent, 
security if any, required by law for all Revenues and other funds deposited with or held by such agents 
hereunder. 

Section 8.06. Notice to Agents. Depositary, and every agent appointed and acting hereunder, 
shall be protected in acting upon any notice, ordinance, resolution, request, consent, order, certificate, 
report, bond or other paper or document believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or 
presented by the proper party or parties. 

Neither the Depositary nor any Paying Agent, Fiscal Agent or Registration Agent, respectively, shall be 
bound to recognize any person as the holder of a Bond unless and until such Bond is submitted for 
inspection, if required, and his title thereto satisfactorily established, if disputed. 

Whenever the Depositary, the Fiscal Agent, the Registration Agent or any Paying Agent, respectively, 
shall deem it necessary or desirable that a matter be proved or established prior to taking or suffering 



9390 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



December 29, 1958 



any action hereunder, such matter (unless other evidence in respect thereof be herein specifically pre- 
scribed) may be deemed to be conclusively proved and established by a certificate of the City, and such 
certificate shall be full warrant for any action taken or suffered under the provisions of this Ordinance 
or any supplemental ordinance, but in its discretion said Depositary and each such agent, respectively, 
may, in lieu thereof, accept other evidence of such fact or matter or may require such further or addi- 
tional evidence as to it may seem reasonable. 

Section 8.07. Events of Default; Application of Revenues. The City shall be in default herein if 
one or more of the following events (herein called "events of default") shall happen, to wit: 

(a) If default shall be made in the due and punctual payment of the principal of any Bond 

when and as the same shall become due and payable; 

(b) If default shall be made in the due and punctual payment of any installment of interest on 
any Bond when and as such interest installment shall become due and payable, and such default shall 
have continued for a period of thirty (30) days; 

(c) If default shall be made in the due and punctual payment or satisfaction of any Sinking 
Fund payment when and as such Sinking Fund payment shall become due and payable as in this 
Ordinance or any supplemental ordinance expressed, (unless under the provisions of Section 5.04 of 

this Ordinance such failure shall not be deemed a default) and such default shall have continued for 
a period of one hundred eighty (180) days; 

(d) If default shall be made by the City in the observance of any other covenants, agreements or 
conditions on its part in this Ordinance or any supplemental ordinance or in the Bonds contained 
(unless under the provisions of Section 5.04 of this Ordinance, such failure shall not be deemed a 
default), and such default shall have continued for a period of ninety (90) days after written notice 
thereof given to the City by the Depositary setting forth the nature of such default. 

Then and in each and every such case and so long as such event of default shall continue, the holders 
of not less than twenty per cent (20%) of the principal amount of the Bonds at the time outstanding shall 
be entitled, upon notice in writing to the City, to declare the principal of all of the Bonds then outstanding 
hereunder and the interest accrued thereon to be due and payable immediately, and upon any such declara- 
tion the same shall become and shall be immediately due and payable, anything in this Ordinance or in 
the Bonds contained to the contrary notwithstanding. 

All of the Net Revenues of the Airport including all sums in the Revenue Fund provided for in 
Article V upon the date of the happening of any event of default and all Net Revenues thereafter 
received by the City or Depositary hereunder shall be applied by the City and the Depositary in the order 
following upon presentation of the several Bonds and coupons, and the stamping thereon of the payment 
if only partially paid, or upon the surrender thereof if fully paid: 

First, to the payment of the costs and expenses of the holders of the Bonds in declaring such 
event of default, including reasonable compensation to their agents, attorneys and counsel, and to the 
payment of the cost and expenses of the Depositary, acting as trustee and attorney in fact for the 
Bondholders in carrying out the provisions of this Section 8.07, including reasonable compensation to 
its agents, attorneys and counsel; 

Second, in case the principal of the Bonds shall not have become due and shall not then be due 
and payable, to the payment of the interest in default in the order of the maturity of the installments 
of such interest, with interest on the overdue installments at the rate of five (5) per cent per annum, 
such payments to be made ratably to the persons entitled thereto without discrimination or preference; 

Third, in case the principal of the Bonds shall have become and shall be then due and payable, 
to the payment of the whole amount then owing and unpaid upon the Bonds for principal and inter- 
est, with interest on the overdue principal and installments of interest at the rate of five (5) per cent 
per annum, and in case such moneys shall be insufficient to pay in full the whole amount so owing 
and unpaid upon the Bonds, then to the payment of such principal and interest without preference or

9391 



priority of principal over interest, or of interest over principal, or of any installment of interest over 
any other installment of interest, ratably to the aggregate of such principal and interest. 

Section 8.08. Rights of Holders of Bonds upon Default. Subject to any contractual limitations 
binding upon the holders of any of the Bonds (including the provisions of Section 8.09 and any other 
limitations herein upon the exercise of any remedy to holders holding a specific proportion or percentage 
of the Bonds), any holder of Bonds shall have the right, for the equal benefit and protection of all holders 
of Bonds similarly situated: 

(a) By mandamus or other suit, action or proceeding at law or in equity to enforce his rights 
against the City and the City Council and any of its officers, agents and employees, and to require 
and compel the City or the City Council or any such officers, agents or employees, to perform and 
carry out its and their duties and obligations under the Laws of the State of Illinois and its and their 
covenants and agreements with the holders of the Bonds as provided in this Ordinance or any sup- 
plemental ordinance; 

(b) By action or suit in equity to require the City and the City Council to account as if they 
were the trustee of an express trust; or 

(c) By action or suit in equity to enjoin any acts or things which may be unlawful or in viola- 
tion of the rights of the holders of the Bonds. 

No remedy conferred hereby upon any holder of Bonds is intended to be exclusive of any other 
remedy, but each such remedy is cumulative and in addition to every other remedy and may be exercised 
without exhausting and without regard to any other remedy conferred hereby. No waiver of any default or 
breach of duty or contract by the holder of any Bond shall extend to or shall affect any subsequent de- 
fault or breach of duty or contract or shall impair any rights or remedies thereon. No delay or omission 
of the holder of any Bond to exercise any right or power accruing upon any default shall impair any such 
right or power or shall be construed to be a waiver of any such default or acquiescence therein. Every 
substantive right and every remedy conferred upon the holders of the Bonds may be enforced and exer- 
pised from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient. In case any suit, action or proceeding 
to enforce any right or exercise any remedy shall be brought or taken and then discontinued or abandoned, 
or shall be determined adversely to the holders of the Bonds, then, and in every such case, the City and 
the holders of the Bonds shall be restored to their former positions and rights and remedies as if no such 
suit, action or proceeding had been brought or taken. 

Section 8.09. Depositary to Act as Trustee for Bondholders. The Depositary appointed (and the 
successive respective holders and registered owners of the Bonds and interest coupons, by taking and 
holding the same, shall be conclusively deemed to have so appointed the Depositary) shall act as Trustee 
to represent the Bondholders in the matter of exercising and prosecuting on their behalf such rights and 
remedies as may be available to such holders under the provisions of the Bonds and this Ordinance as well 
as under the Law or other provisions of applicable law. Upon any default or other occasion giving rise 
to a right of such Trustee to represent the Bondholders, such Trustee may take such action on behalf of 
the Bondholders as may seem appropriate to it and, upon the request in writing of the holders or registered 
owners of twenty (20) per cent in principal amount of all the Bonds then outstanding, which request 
shall specify such default or occasion and the action to be taken by the Trustee, and upon being fur- 
nished with indemnity satisfactory to it, such Trustee shall take such action on behalf of the Bondholders 
as may have been so requested. 

Except as in this Section 8.09 provided, no holder or registered owner of any Bond or of any interest 
coupon pertaining to any Coupon Bond shall have any right by virtue or by availing of any provision of 
this Ordinance or the Law or other provisions of applicable law to institute any suit, action or proceed- 
ing, at law or in equity, for the appointment of any trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or custo- 
dian of the Revenues and other funds pledged or held hereunder, unless such holder or registered owner 
shall previously have given to the Trustee written notice of an existing default, and unless, also, there shall 
have been tendered to the Trustee security and indemnity satisfactory to it against all costs, expenses and 



9392 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 29, 1958 



liabilities which might be incurred in or by reason of such action, suit or proceeding, and unless, also, 
the holders or registered owners of twenty (20) per cent in aggregate principal amount of all the Bonds 
then outstanding shall have requested the Trustee in writing to take action with respect to such default 
and the Trustee shall have declined to take such action or failed so to do within thirty (30) days thereafter; 
it being intended that no one or more holders or registered owners of Bonds or interest coupons shall have 
any right in any manner to institute or prosecute any action, suit or proceeding for the appointment of 
a trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or custodian of the Revenues and other funds pledged or held 
hereunder, except in the manner herein provided, and for the equal, proportionate benefit of all holders 
and registered owners of outstanding Bonds and interest coupons; provided that nothing contained in this 
Ordinance or in the Bonds shall affect or impair the obligation to pay the principal of, premium (if any) 
and the interest on the Bonds as therein provided, or shall affect or impair the right of action, which 
is absolute and unconditional, of the holders or registered owners of the Bonds to otherwise enforce pay- 
ment thereof by virtue of the contract embodied in the Bonds and in this Ordinance and the Law and 
other applicable statutes and provisions of law or to enforce any of the covenants or provisions in the 
Bonds, this Ordinance, the Law, or other applicable statutes or provisions of law except as hereinabove 
provided with respect to suits, actions or proceedings for the appointment of any trustee in bankruptcy, 
receiver, liquidator or custodian of the Revenues and other funds pledged or held hereunder. 

Section 8.10. Depositary Constituted Attorney-in-Fact for Bondholders. The Depositary is hereby 
appointed (and the successive respective holders and registered owners of the Bonds and interest coupons 
issued hereunder, by taking and holding the same, shall be conclusively deemed to have so appointed it) 
the true and lawful attorney-in-fact of the respective holders and registered owners of the Bonds and 
interest coupons, with authority to make or file, irrespective of whether the Bonds or any of them are in 
default as to payment of principal or interest, in the respective names of the holders and registered owners 
of the Bonds or interest coupons, or in behalf of all holders and registered owners of the Bonds, or of inter- 
est coupons pertaining to the Bonds, as a class or classes, any proof of debt, amendment of proof of debt, 
petition or other document, to receive payment of any sum or sums becoming distributable on account 
thereof, and to execute any and all other papers and documents and to do and perform any and all acts 
and things for and in behalf of the respective holders of the Bonds or interest coupons, or in behalf of such 
holders and registered owners as a class or classes, as may be necessary or advisable in the opinion of such 
attorney-in-fact in order to have the respective claims of such holders or registered owners of Bonds or 
interest coupons allowed in any equity receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy or other proceed- 
ings to which the City may at any time be a party, and to receive payment of or on account of such claims; 
and each and every receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy is hereby authorized by each of the respec- 
tive holders and registered owners of the Bonds and interest coupons to make such payments to such 
attorney-in-fact, and, in the event that such attorney-in-fact shall consent to the making of such payments 
directly to such holders or registered owners, to pay to such attorney-in-fact any amount which may 
be due to it for compensation and expenses, including counsel fees, incurred by it up to the date of such 
distribution. 

Section 8.11. Resignation, Merger, Consolidation or Removal of Agents, and Appointment of Suc- 
cessor Agents. Any Depositary, Paying Agent, Registration or Fiscal Agent appointed hereunder may 
resign or be removed by the City at any time upon the giving of not less than thirty (SP) days written notice 
thereof. It may be discharged of its duties and obligations imposed upon it by accounting to the City as 
to all funds and securities held by it and upon the delivery of said funds, securities, and all books and 
records to the successor; provided, that in the case of any such resignation or removal the City shall forth- 
with and within ten (10) days prior to the effective date of such resignation, or simultaneously with any 
such removal, appoint a successor. Any successor shall deliver to the City Comptroller an acceptance in 
writing of such appointment hereunder and shall thereupon, as such successor, be fully vested with all 
moneys, properties, rights, powers and duties of its predecessor with like force and effect as if originally 
named as provided by this Ordinance. Any company into which any agent may be merged or with which 
it may be consolidated, pursuant to any proceedings authorized by law, shall forthwith become and be 
constituted a successor agent hereunder; provided that such merged or consolidated company is then

authorized under applicable law to perform all of the duties and obligations imposed upon such agent 
hereunder. 

ARTICLE IX 
Modification and Amendment of the Ordinance 

Section 9.01. Amendment by Two-Thirds Consent of Bondholders. This Ordinance and the rights 
and obligations of the City and of the holders and registered owners of the Bonds and coupons may be 
modified or amended at any time by ordinance supplemental hereto adopted by the City Council pursu- 
ant to the affirmative vote at a meeting of Bondholders, or with the written consent without a meeting, of 
the holders of 662/3% in principal amount of all of the Bonds then outstanding; no such modification or 
amendment shall extend the maturity of or reduce the interest rate on, or otherwise alter or impair the 
obligation of the City to pay the principal or interest or redemption premiums at the time and place and 
at the rate and in the currency provided therein of any Bond without the express consent of the holder or 
registered owner of such Bond, nor permit the creation by the City of any mortgage or pledge, or lien on 
the Airport, or upon any Revenues or other funds pledged or held hereunder, nor reduce the percentage 
of Bonds required for the affirmative vote or written consent to an amendment or modification, nor, 
without the written assent thereto, modify any of the rights or obligations of the Depositary, the Fiscal 
Agent or any Paying Agent at the time acting hereunder. 

Section 9.02. Bondholders' Meetings. The City Council may at any time call a meeting of the 
holders of Bonds. Every such meeting shall be held at such place in the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, 
as may be specified in the notice calling such meeting. Written notice of such meeting, stating the place 
and time of the meeting and in general terms the business to be submitted, shall be given by the City Clerk 
to the Registration Agent who shall mail, postage prepaid, not less than thirty (30) days nor more than 
sixty (60) days before such meeting, (a) to each registered owner of Bonds then outstanding, at his 
address, if any, appearing upon the books of the Registration Agent, and (b) to each holder of any Bond 
payable to bearer who shall have filed with the Registration Agent an address for notices, and such notice 
shall be published by the City Clerk at least once a week for two (2) successive weeks in a daily news- 
paper published in the English language and having a general circulation in the City of Chicago, State of 
Illinois, and also by similar publication in a newspaper published in the City of New York, State of New 
York, the first such publication to be not less than thirty (30) nor more than sixty (60) days prior to the 
meeting; provided, however, that the mailing of such notice shall in no case be a condition precedent 
to the validity of any action taken at any such meeting. 

Section 9.03. Attendance in Person or by Proxy. Attendance and voting by Bondholders at such 
meeting may be in person or by proxy. Owners of Registered Bonds may, by an instrument in writing under 
their hands, appoint any person as their proxy to vote at any meeting for them. 

In order that holders of Bonds payable to bearer or their proxies may attend and vote without pro- 
ducing their Bonds, the City Council may make and from time to time vary such regulations as it shall think 
proper for the deposit of Bonds with, or exhibit of Bonds to, any banks, bankers, trust companies, members 
of the New York Stock Exchange or Midwest Stock Exchange or other depositaries wherever situated, and 
for the issue by them, to the persons depositing or exhibiting such Bonds, of certificates in form approved 
by the City Comptroller which shall constitute proof of ownership entitling the holders thereof to be 
present and vote at any such meeting and to appoint proxies to represent them and vote for them at any 
such meeting in the same way as if the persons so present and voting either personally or by proxy, were 
the actual bearers of the Bonds in respect of which such certificates shall have been issued and any regu- 
lations so made shall be binding and effective. Copies of such regulations shall be kept on file in the office 
of the City Comptroller in Chicago, Illinois. Officers or nominees of the City may be present or represented 
at such meeting and taJte part therein, but shall not be entitled to vote thereat. 

Any registered owner of Bonds or any holder of a certificate provided for in this Section 9.03 shall be 
entitled in person or by proxy to attend and vote at such meeting as holder of the Bonds registered or 
certified in his name, without producing such Bonds. All others seeking to attend or vote at such meeting 



9394 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 29, 1958 



in person or by proxy must produce the Bonds claimed to be owned or represented at such meeting, and 
all persons seeking to attend or vote at such meeting in person or by proxy shall, if required, produce such 
further proof of Bond ownership or personal identity as shall be satisfactory to the City Comptroller. All 
proxies presented at any meeting shall be delivered to the Inspectors of Votes and filed with the City 
Comptroller. 

Section 9.04. Chairman. Persons named by the City Comptroller shall act as temporary Chair- 
man and Secretary of any meeting of Bondholders. A permanent Chairman and a permanent Secretary 
of such meeting shall be selected by the Bondholders and proxies present by a majority vote of the par 
value of Bonds represented. The permanent Chairman of the meeting shall appoint two Inspectors of 
Votes who shall count all votes cast at such meeting, except votes on the election of Chairman and Secre- 
tary as aforesaid, and who shall make and file with the Secretary of the meeting their verified vmtten 
report in duplicate of all such votes so cast at said meeting. The ballots, if any, cast at the meeting shall 
not be attached to such election rep)ort, but shall be filed separately with the City Comptroller. 

Section 9.05. Quorum and Adjournments. The holders of not less than 663/3% in principal amount 
of all Bonds outstanding constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. A majority of less than a 
quorum, however, shall have power to adjourn from time to time without any other notice than the 
announcement thereof at the meeting; provided, however, that if such meeting is adjourned by less than 
a quorum for more than thirty (30) days, notice thereof shall forthwith be mailed by the City Clerk at 
least seven (7) days prior to the adjourned date of the meeting in the manner provided in Section 9.02 
and such notice shall be published by the City Clerk in the manner provided at least once in each thirty 
(30) day period of such adjournment. The failure to mail such notice as aforesaid shall in no case affect 
the validity of any action taken at any meeting held pursuant to such adjournment. 

Section 9.06. Records of Bondholder/ Meetings. A record, in duplicate, of the proceedings of each 
meeting of Bondholders shall be prepared by the permanent Secretary of the meeting and shall have 
attached thereto the original reports of the Inspectors of Votes and affidavits by a person or persons hav- 
ing knowledge of the facts, showing a copy of the notice of the meeting and setting forth the facts with 
respect to the mailing and publication thereof under the provisions of Section 9.02 and, in a proper 
case, under the provisions of Section 9.05. Such a record shall be signed and verified by the affidavits 
of the permanent Chairman and the permanent Secretary of the meeting, and shall be delivered to 
the City Comptroller. Any record so signed and verified shall be proof of the matters therein stated until 
the contrary is proved. A true copy of any resolution adopted by such meeting shall be furnished to and 
mailed by the Registration Agent to each registered owner of Bonds outstanding hereunder and to each 
holder of any such Bonds payable to bearer who shall have filed with the Registration Agent an address 
for notices (but failure so to mail copies of such resolution shall not affect the validity of such resolution) 
and notice of the fact of the adoption of such resolution (stating that a copy thereof is available for 
inspection at the office of the City Comptroller) shall be published by the City Comptroller at least once 
a week for two (2) successive weeks in a daily newspaper published in the English language and having 
a general circulation in the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, and also by like publication in a newspaf>er 
in the City of New York, State of New York, the first publication in each case to be made not more than 
ten (10) days after the date of the adoption of such resolution. Proof of such mailing and publication by 
the affidavit or affidavits of a person or persons having knowledge of the facts shall be filed with the City 
Comptroller. No such resolution adopted by such meeting shall be binding unless a valid ordinance of the 
City Council be passed containing the modifications or amendments authorized by the resolution adopted 
by such meeting. A copy of said ordinance of the City Council, certified by the City Clerk, or other duly 
authorized officer of the City Council, shall be filed with the Registration Agent. If such an ordinance 
of the City Council is adopted then the ordinance adopted by the City Council shall be deemed conclu- 
sively to be binding upon the City and the holders of all Bonds and coupons (except as otherwise herein- 
above specifically provided in this Article) at the expiration of sixty (60) days after such filing, except in 
the event of a final decree of a court of competent jurisdiction setting aside the resolution adopted by such 
meeting of Bondholders or annulling the action taken thereby in a legal action or equitable proceeding 
for such purpose commenced within such sixty (60) day period. Nothing in this Article contained shall

be deemed or construed to authorize or permit, by reason of any call of a meeting of Bondholders or of 
any right expressly or impliedly conferred hereunder to make such call, any hindrance or delay in the 
exercise of any right or rights conferred upon or reserved to the Bondholders under any of the provisions 
of this Ordinance or of any ordinance amendatory hereof or supplemental hereto or of the Bonds issued 
hereunder. 

Section 9.07. Amendments by Written Consent of Bondholders. The City Council may at any time 
adopt a valid ordinance amending the provisions of the Bonds or of this Ordinance or of any ordinance 
amendatory hereof or supplemental hereto, or any two or more of the foregoing, to the extent that such 
an amendment is permitted by the provisions of Section 9.01, to take eflFect when and as provided in this 
Section 9.07. A copy of such ordinance, together with a request to Bondholders for their consent thereto, 
shall be mailed by the Registration Agent to Bondholders and notice of the adoption thereof shall be pub- 
lished in the manner provided in Section 9.06 for the mailing and publication referred to in that Section 
(but failure to mail copies of such ordinance and request shall not affect the validity of the ordinance 
when assented to as in this Section 9.07 provided) . Such ordinance shall not be effective unless and until 
there shall have been filed with the Registration Agent the written consents of the percentages of holders 
of outstanding Bonds specified in Section 9.01 and a notice shall have been published as hereinafter in 
this Section 9.07 provided. Each such consent shall be effective only if accompanied by proof of owner- 
ship of the Bonds for which such consent is given, which proof shall be such as is permitted by Section 
9.03. Any such consent shall be binding upon the holder of the Bonds giving such consent and on any 
subsequent holder (whether or not such subsequent holder has notice thereof) unless such consent is 
revoked in writing by the holder giving such consent or a subsequent holder by filing such revocation 
with the Registration Agent prior to the first date when the notice hereinafter in this Section provided for 
has been published. After the holders of the required percentages of Bonds shall have filed their consents 
to the ordinance, the Registration Agent shall mail and publish a notice to the Bondholders in the manner 
provided in Section 9.06 for the mailing of the resolution adopted at a meeting of Bondholders and publi- 
cation of a notice of adoption thereof referred to in said Section (but failure to mail copies of said notice 
shall not affect the validity of the ordinance or consents thereto) stating in substance that the ordinance 
has been consented to by the holders of the required percentages of Bonds and will be effective as pro- 
vided in this Section 9.07. A Certificate of the Registration Agent reciting the compliance with the provi- 
sions of this Section 9.07 shall be filed with the City Comptroller and ^hall be proof of the matters therein 
stated until the contrary is proved, and the ordinance shall be deemed conclusively binding upon the City 
and the holders of all Bonds and coupons at the expiration of sixty (60) days after the filing with the 
City Comptroller of the Certificate as aforesaid, except in the event of a final decree of a court of compe- 
tent jurisdiction setting aside such consent in a legal action or equitable proceeding for such purpose 
commenced within such sixty (60) day period. 

Section 9.08. Endorsement of Bonds. Bonds delivered after the effective date of any action taken 
as hereinabove provided may bear a notation by endorsement or otherwise in form approved by the City 
as to such action, and in that case upon demand of the holder of any Bond outstanding at such effective 
date and presentation of his Bond for the purpose at the office of the Registration Agent and at such 
additional offices as the City may select and designate for that purpose, a suitable notation shall be made 
on such Bond. If the City shall so determine, new Bonds so modified as to conform to such Bondholders' 
action shall be prepared, executed and delivered, and upon demand of the holder of any Bond then 
outstanding shall be exchanged in the City of Chicago, without cost to any Bondholder, for Bonds then 
outstanding, upon surrender of such Bonds with all unmatured coupons appertaining thereto.

statutory limitation or provision; and each such Bond and interest thereon shall be payable exclusively 
from Net Revenues and shall be secured by the pledge of Net Revenues; and the City shall not be re- 
quired to advance any moneys derived from the proceeds of taxes collected in the City for the use and 
benefit of the City, or from any source of income other than Revenues, for any of the purposes in this 
Ordinance mentioned, whether for the payment of the principal of or interest on the Bonds or for the 
maintenance and operation of the Airport. 

Section 10.02. Benefits of Bondholders Limited to Parties. Nothing in this Ordinance, expressed 
or implied, is intended or shall be construed to confer upon, or to give to, any person, firm or corpora- 
tion other than the parties hereto and the holders and registered owners of the Bonds and of the coupons 
outstanding, any right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Ordinance, and any covenants, stipula- 
tions, promises and agreements in this Ordinance contained by and on behalf of the City shall be for the 
sole and exclusive benefit of the parties hereto, and of the holders of the Bonds and of the coupons 
outstanding. 

Section 10.03. Successor is Deemed Included in all References to Predecessor. Whenever in this 
Ordinance or any supplemental ordinance either the City or the Depositary or any Paying Agent, Reg- 
istration Agent or Fiscal Agent is named or referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the 
successors or assigns thereof and all the covenants and agreements in this Ordinance contained by or on 
behalf of the City or by or on behalf of the Depositary or any such Agent shall bind and inure to the 
benefit of the respective successors and assigns thereof whether so expressed or not. 

Whenever in this Ordinance, or any supplemental ordinance, any official or department of the City 
is named or referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include any successor to whom the present 
duties with respect to the Airport of such official or department shall be transferred in whole or in part. 

Section 10.04. Discharge of Ordinance. If all of the outstanding Bonds shall have matured, or 
shall have been duly called for redemption and the redemption date thereof shall have arrived, and if the 
City shall have deposited with the Depositary in trust, funds pursuant to this Ordinance sufficient to pay 
and available for the payment of all amounts due on all Bonds then outstanding, including all prin- 
cipal, interest and redemption premiums, if any, then, notwithstanding that any Bonds or interest coupons 
shall not have been surrendered for payment, the pledge of the Revenues provided for in this Ordinance 
and all other obligations of the City under this Ordinance shall cease and terminate. 

Any such funds held by the Depositary or any Paying Agent or the Fiscal Agent which have not been 
disbursed in the payment of Bonds and interest as aforesaid during the period of ten years after the 
deposit referred to in the foregoing paragraph, shall be paid over to the City together with the schedule 
of the Bonds not paid or redeemed and thereupon the Depositary is relieved of any further duty in the 
premises. 

No Bond or appurtenant coupon shall, after the maturity thereof either according to its terms or 
through call of such Bond for earlier redemption, be deemed to be outstanding provided that moneys in 
the requisite amount for the payment thereof shall have been deposited with the Depositary or Paying 
Agent, as trust funds, and are available for payment of such Bond or coupon upon demand. After all Bonds 
and interest coupons have been paid the Revenues received from the operation of the Airport shall be 
used for the maintenance, operation, repair and development of the Airport.

declaration or other instrument or writing acknowledged to him the execution thereof, or by an afiBdavit 
of a witness of such execution, duly sworn to before such notary public or other officer. 

Except as otherwise herein expressly provided in Article IX, the amount of Bonds transferable by 
delivery held by any person executing such request, declaration or other instrument or writing as a 
Bondholder, and the nvunbers thereof, and the date of his holding such Bonds, may be proved by a 
certificate, which need not be acknowledged or verified, satisfactory to the Depositary, executed by a trust 
company, bank, investment banker, dealer, broker, member of the New York Stock Exchange, member 
of the Midwest Stock Exchange or other depositary wherever situated, showing that at the date therein 
mentioned such person exhibited to or had on deposit with such depositary the Bonds described in such 
certificate. Continued ownership after the date of deposit stated in such certificate may be proved by the 
presentation of such certificate if the certificate contains a statement by the depositary that the Bonds 
therein referred to are in fact held on deposit by such depositary and will not be surrendered without the 
surrender of the certificate to such depositary, except with the consent of the Depositary. The Depositary 
may nevertheless in its discretion require further or other proof in cases where it deems the same desirable. 
The ownership of registered Bonds and the amount, maturity, number and date of holding the same shall 
be proved by the registry books. 

Any request, declaration or other instrxunent or writing of the owner of any Bond shall bind all 
future owners of such Bond in respect of anything done or suffered to be done by the City or by the

employee from the performance of any official duty provided by law. 

Section 10.07. Official Publication. Any publication to be made under the provisions of this 
Ordinance in successive weeks may be made in each instance upon any business day of the week and need 
not be made on the same day of any succeeding week nor in the same newspaper for any or all of the 
successive publications, but may be made in different newspapers. 

Section 10.08. Partial Invalidity. If any one or more of the covenants or agreements, or portions 
thereof, provided in this Ordinance should be contrary to law, then such covenant or covenants, such 
agreement or agreements or such portions thereof, shall be null and void and shall be deemed separable 
from the remaining covenants and agreements or portions thereof and shall in no way affect the validity 
of this Ordinance or of the Bonds, and the duties or responsibilities and rights imposed upon or granted 
to any agent contrary to or in violation of any law shall be vested in the City Comptroller with like force 
and effect as if the City Comptroller had been named herein in the first instance in lieu of such agent; 
but the Bondholders shall retain all the rights and benefits accorded to them under the Law or any other 
applicable provisions of law. 

Section 10.09. Repeal of Inconsistent Ordinances. All other ordinances of the City Council, or 
parts of ordinances and resolutions, inconsistent with this Ordinance are hereby repealed to the extent of
